This book provides a range of stories through which young children can explore and learn about other cultures. Each activity page will include: * The story * Adult-led and independent activity ideas to follow up the story * Related songs, poems and rhymes * A list of additional stories, information books and websites * Relevant links with the EYFS Areas of Learning and Development
