Tongue Twisters for Kids [Kindle Edition]
There are 50 tongue twisters in this ebook; enough to keep the little tackers going if they attempt to master one per day. You could post a daily tongue twister on your fridge or noticeboard and use it as a password for kids to access screen time or whatever. The kids could set themselves a challenge to master the most in the shortest time. Or maybe this ebook will be your biggest regret.

The fourth and final in a series of ebooks that provide trivial facts related to the number 4 e.g. Of all the animals, only the elephant has four knees. Before I read this ebook, I did not know THAT! Number FOUR World Facts could be used as a template by your kids to create their own personalized facts books about their family, their school or perhaps themselves.

Written from the point of view of a horse who longs to be a seahorse, with numerous reasons as to why e.g. I wish I were a seahorse so I could have an amazing tail. After each reason for wanting to be a seahorse, a little tidbit about seahorses is given: [Did you know that seahorses have a prehensile tail?]. Not only will your children learn about seahorses, but they will also increase their vocabulary!

We have all been wondering what the fox said, well here are four aesops fables that tell what the fox learnt. The Fox and the Crow ("Do not trust flatterers"), The Fox and the Goat ("Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties"), The Fox and the Grapes ("It is easy to despise what you cannot get" - oh yeah, this is SO pertinent to my kids right now!), The Fox and the Cat ("Better one safe way than a hundred on which you cannot reckon").

As the mother of a child with Down Sydnrome, I have grown a new appreciation for stories such as the Ugly Duckling. I used to think the story was all about the swan being confident in his identity, but now I read it as a story about the others  learning to see with different eyes and value others for who they are. "It is only with the heart that one can see clearly, for the most essential things are invisible to the eye" - Antonie De Sainte-Exupery
