Our hero is a clever caterpillar and his unique ability to eat wood not only leads him into the most unusual trouble, it also helps him find some ingenious solutions. The stories are spiced with good humour, the plots are blended with local customs of countries he visits, and the challenges and setbacks are met with imagination, courage and optimism – a perfect choice for reading aloud to your children or grandchildren.The adventures in this East Album are:o Ack-Lee Duk Ling | The Emperors Daughtero Tok-Tokkie | The Aussie Mateo Abid Fahwaut | The Berber SheikhOne of the most enjoyable moments (grand)parents can have with their (grand)children comes from reading them a story. And in addition to the pleasure it brings, it is exceptionally valuable for them too, because language has a large impact on a child’s development. The range of words they hear each day builds their vocabulary and will improve their communication skills, and the variety of topics they hear stimulates their imagination and will trigger their creativity. And the beauty of reading aloud to your (grand)children – even when they can already read themselves – is that when they dont need to concentrate on their technical skills, but can pay attention purely to the content, the story can be aimed at their level of intelligence, which is usually way ahead of their own ability to read. So when there is an opportunity to cuddle up on the couch or maybe an evening around a campfire, and when it is time to tuck them into bed, pick up a Wally adventure, count to zero, and read them a story!
