If you go into the dark and tiptoe about in the night,
nothing will look the same as it does when it is light.
Can a fox be scared of the dark? This one is sometimes, but that’s ok! Everyone gets scared of something sometimes, and we don’t only mean kids. Talking about fears can help children feel safer and parents understand and offer them support. This lovely story, along with its packed activity sheet includes talking points about fear, ideas for play in the dark, things to spot or find out about relating to the night sky, nocturnal animals, and much more, as well as craft activities focussing on light and darkness.
Bring this lovely family story to life with our lovingly created multi-sensory story sack, packed to the brim with themed objects and toys for you and your little ones to enjoy. Each story sack contains your chosen book, gorgeous puppets from the Puppet Company, Lanka Kade wooden creatures, props including toys, natural objects, and other carefully curated items to help you to enact and investigate the story and to provide a basis for themed play. But that’s not all, each story sack comes with a different activity sheet full of suggested ways to explore the book and its themes further with the whole family, from the youngest infant to the most doting of grandparents, these charming story sacks will bring books to life like never before.
