Good morning and what a beautiful morning it is! I was out for an early walk with my dog and I watched the sunrise. The sky was amazing, with dust that has blown over from the Sahara Desert (North Africa), making the most beautiful colours. It looked like there was a fire in the sky...

MONDAY MUNCH CHALLENGE

Listen to this lovely story - THE THING ABOUT SPRING.
Spring is in the air! Bear, Bird, and Mouse are all excited that winter snows are melting away, but their friend Rabbit is not. There are too many things about winter that Rabbit adores, and spring just seems to spell trouble!
(I like the bright mornings and the colourful flowers that spring up!)

I like this story and the title is definitely something I can relate to at the moment...
'Need a Trim, Jim' by Kaye Umansky and Margaret Chamberlain.
In this book the people all have haircuts that suit their face. But everyone's forgotten what Jim's face looks like because it is hidden behind an enormous fringe. He's not too keen on the idea of cutting off his gorgeous locks but when he's finally in the barber's chair, it's a simple snip and then Jim is trimmed!
