Fenek and Max are real heroes! Have they put out a fire? Have they prevented an accident from happening? If you want to find out what they have actually done, and why it has been so amazing, you must read this story. Thanks to this book, your child: - will learn the meaning of honesty; - will understand that being honest can give one lots of satisfaction; - will realise that even children can help someone in an important matter. Interesting ways of spending time with your child:Talk about honesty and give some examples of proper and improper behaviour. Do some role playing with hand puppets or other soft toys.

Discuss how you could have helped Mrs. Duck if there hadn’t been any documents in the wallet – for example, by going to the nearest police station, contacting a local radio station, or trying the lost property office. The Adventures of Fenek - Books for younger childrenThematic series that respond to the needs of pre-school and kindergarten teachers, parents, and psychologists. 20-page brochures are published in series of four books each, and they are all thematically related. Where did the idea to make children’s educational tales that are different from the rest come from?One day, we decided to create a character who would be loved by thousands of children. We looked at our youngest and realised how much depends on us, adults. It dawned on us that if we bring up our children to become good and noble people, there is a big chance that they will do the same in the future. They will pass the love they got from us on to their children, who will then do the same, and so on… Fenek is our life. You can join Fenek’s family and spread the good.Show more
