The first 2 weeks of July saw us on Winter break. Noo was home on school holidays so we took a break from lessons too.

This is by far the most amusingly cute and adorable story we have read to date. OMGsh, its so adorable and the kidlets love it. Koko has read it aloud numerous times and has a good giggle at the end (with a few LOL’s inbetween). I highly recommend it for little ones!

My kids just loved the penguin craft we did. It was a lovely winters day too, so they got to spend some extra time outside enjoying the warm weather. Gotto love Africa! For directions on how to make this craft, see the resources section below.
