Sylvanian Chronicles

In giving Rebecca her first blog award the other day, I was reminded of a recent post she'd written that had tickled me when I first read it, and which I just thought I'd share with you now :) As you may know, B is a Sylvanian Families collector (she just recently turned 8, if you were wondering). Do pop by her blog if you've a moment; I know she'd welcome new readers and followers ;)

Actually, reading it again now, I'm thinking I might occasionally include her "Sylvanian Chronicles" here haha; after all, I'm sure you're dying to know what happens next! There's nothing quite like a child's imagination to put a little smile on one's face -- have a lovely, blissful weekend everyone!

Today Mrs Seadog is taking the patio class. She is giving Lucy Polar Bear, Harland Sheepdog, Hester Honeyfox and Felix Renard extra tuition in fractions (Harland has gone over to Mrs Beagle's class just to listen to Ellis Elephant's presentation on yogurt. He still can't believe it is made with bacteria). Mrs Seadog says that the word "fractions" comes from the Latin word "fractus", which means "broken". The kids were confused about all the different types of fractions and Mrs Seadog is trying to explain. She always uses the example of a pizza.

Here you can see the kids! Hester Honeyfox is starting to think she understands what a denominator is. Felix Renard is thinking that since he broke his arm last month, it is still only a fraction of how strong it used to be. Lucy Polar Bear is raising her paw to ask Mrs Seadog to use cakes to explain what mixed fractions are. Harland Sheepdog is thinking she should use real cakes.

Here are Jemima Kangaroo and Iris Smoky Cat having their late morning snack. They had had chess practice early in the morning and hadn't had time for breakfast (and you know breakfast is the most important meal of the day!). Iris is saying, "It's true, 'gnu' is pronounced 'noo'!" and Jemima is saying, "Really! I wonder what they have the 'g' there for then". 

Tune in next time for the next part of my Sylvanian story!

I love your Sylvanian Chronicles. You are a very talented story-teller Rebecca. My favourite families are the Persian Cats and the Hedgehogs.

This is adorable! What a great storyteller. (Yes, there is nothing like a child's imagination to put a smile on your face :)

Oh, I love this! I can see that Rebecca has a wonderful imagination and is very gifted in writing, as well. This indeed put a smile on my face and brought back some lovely memories of playing with my own daughter when she was Rebecca's age. Thank you, Rebecca!
