We have built sandcastles and "caught" a giant fish in Whitby; walked the Stickman Trail in the Dalby Forest; fed the goats at Playdale Farm Park in Scarborough; and we finished off the week with a BBQ in the garden.
Of course, we have read many books too and Izzie (4) has now completed the Library's Big Friendly Read, Summer Challenge. Here were her six choices:
1. Wolfish Stew - Suzi Moore and Erica Salcedo
2. The Queen's Orang-utan - David Walliams and Tony Ross
3. Pass It On - Sophy Henn
4. The Mouse Who Reached The Sky - Petr Horacek
5. Wanted Ralfy Rabbit Book Burglar - Emily Mackenzie
6. Alfie Outdoors - Shirley Hughes
One of our favourite books has been “Alfie Outdoors”. Written and illustrated by the incredible Shirley Hughes, this lovely picture book is part of a series of books about a little boy called Alfie and his family. In this story Alfie discovers all the fun he can have outdoors. From digging in the vegetable patch to bug hunting, this book has it all. There are also some beautiful pictures of goats which coincidentally fitted in with our own trip to the farm. We think "Alfie Outdoors" makes the perfect read for a sunny day in the garden.
What have you been up to this week? Have you had any adventures outdoors?
