At the end of last week we got a wonderful surprise when we arrived at school. Our friend Mr. Mannell, a retired teacher from Australia, had sent us a very special package in the mail. One of the grocery stores in Australia was running a promotion where you could collect baby animal cards. Mr. Mannell managed to collect a few sets and was kind enough to send one to us. We even got a a folder to display them in. Some of the animals were familiar to us, and some of them we had never even heard of. We love the cool facts on each card. Thank you for the wonderful gift, Mr. Mannell! We are going to laminate the cards on the display so that it will last a long time.
