Best English dictionary for kids

Dear Readers! Just like last year, this winter was also a very hard time for us. Those from you who have small children, especially preschoolers, they know what I mean. Our “winter sleep” lasted for almost three months … But all our last year’s winter and Easter posts (skiing, winter holidays, Easter, pastries, etc.) are always actual and despite a break on our blog, we recorded a lot of entries to those topics, which makes us very happy. Now, we slowly awake and welcome the Spring. Despite our break, we did not idle, and so today we can present the best Dictionary of English for children.

Mother’s Day on Kashtanova Street

On the Kashtanova Street, there was a day like every day, but yet a little bit different one. First of all – it was rainy. But still, at Kashtanky home there was a lot of sun, like usually. Mom Kashtanka was already preparing breakfast, while next to her was sitting little Lucy, when suddenly a little Fifi ran into the kitchen:
– Mom, I want to hug you!
– Oh, Fifi, how nice it is to be hugged in the very morning – told the mother, hugging her son too.

Unusual animated picture book

The book New York in Pyjamarama, which recently joined our Smart Kid Library, and which we will present today, is not an ordinary book. This are magical moving pictures, which certainly will attract attention of any toddler for a longer time. In this book, there was used a very old technique of animationombro cinema” – based on an optical illusion. You just put a striated foil (attached to the book) on the pictures and very slowly move from one edge side to the other, and the pictures come alive! We recommend it and wish you a lot of fun.

Kashtanky (un)usual days

Another Kashtanky day for some of us would pass just as an ordinary day. However, could any day be ordinary for small Kashtanky? Well, Mom Kashanka, as usually, gave a kiss for a good day, helped her children with morning errands and prepared breakfast. Dad Kasztanek helped them in the toilet and after breakfast, he went to job, giving his soon a lift to Kindergarten by the way. While Mom Kashtanka spent the day with small Lucy at home. However, for a small Fifi and even smaller Lulu, all of that looked very different, and thus, also for their parents. Starting from the morning, every day ran unusually for them.
