They say the best things come in small packages. And so it is with Desert Dwellers Flash Cards a perfect gift full of learning that pleases both parents and their preschoolers.

Artist and graphic designer Julie Rustad based in Tucson, Arizona, created the flash cards after taking a year off work to spend time with her new baby. Wanting to create something educational and representative of her desert home, Julie painted while Syver napped.

Flash cards recently received a huge thumbs-up in a study of effective learning techniques by psychologists at Kent State University.
