Kit and Matthew began their African safari at the watering hole. They had two days to see all the wildlife they could. Their parents and the guide kept them safe.
The first morning ten elephants claimed the waterhole for their morning bath. Soon Kit counted eighteen zebras coming for water. A dozen baboons wandered in and started making noise and acting silly. Matthew laughed hard and loud at their antics. His noise sent five zebras running off.
The next day everyone rode into the bush. They paused to look at a lone rhino standing in a clearing. While they were looking, the rhino began to charge them. Kit and Matthew screamed, but the guide drove them to safety. Further on they found a pride of eight lions dozing under an acacia tree. Above the lions played twenty-two monkeys in the tree. Matthew and Kit saw a giraffe with a baby standing beside a tree. The giraffe stretched to reach its food with its tongue. A trio of jackals moved nearby to threaten them. The jackals ran out of sight when the jeep came too close to them. Everyone was tired. They’d seen no leopards, or hyenas, or cheetahs. Lions hadn’t roared, but a rhino had threatened them. What an exciting adventure they had !

Have Fun and Develop New Abilities
Kids tend to pretend to play a lot, they use inanimate objects and give them action and motion while recreating all kind of activities and scenarios. Even though it looks like something simple, it is actually essential to their development. When kids engage in pretend play, they experiment different social and emotional roles of life. They also learn to cooperate when playing with other kids. You might have heard your child talking while playing alone. Imaginary play involves a lot of language skills, they learn how to connect phrases they know with different situations.
