Did You Know ...


... that animals also save for the winter? Squirrels, for example: During the summer, they collect lots of nuts but don't eat all of them straight away. Squirrels also keep nuts in their nests. In winter, when it's cold and there are no more nuts on the trees, squirrels eat their store. Can you think of other animals that save for the winter?

Do You Make Wishes to a Fairy Godmother?

Whether a tree house, a bike, or a fantastic vacation, unfortunately there is no fairy godmother to grant all of our wishes. To make many wishes come true, we need money.

But there are also things that we cannot buy for all the money in the world. For example, friends, health, or superpowers.

Do you have a wish that you can't buy?
