I was surprised to read that the wool from a single sheep (presumably over the course of its life) could be spun into a length of yarn that could go round the world eight times! At least I think that’s roughly what it says.
I’m currently reading some children’s books in French in a desperate effort to improve my French skills.
Anyway they’re a charming series of books (this isn’t the best illustration but then a flying sheep is a bit of a challenge) in the Kididoc series and have all sorts of flaps to open, wheels to turn etc.
We bought them to help our son to learn French – and now he’s gone and chosen to do German instead and I can’t even count in German. You can lead a horse to water…
