9 Fun Activities with 'Daddy's Little Star'



It's Family Fun Month throughout the month of August and people are encouraged to make some time for their families and have some fun!


This week, we feature the book Daddy's Little Star, a book about a playful conversation between Daddy Fox and Little Fox about how the sky goes high up, on and on forever, just like love. To encourage children's participation in storytelling sessions, our team put together a series of storytelling prompts for the book 'Daddy's Little Star' in our previous blog to keep your child engaged during the story session.
