What would you do if you saw a giraffe with an ostrich's body? Or a hippopotamus with a bushy tail of a snow leopard? It's a jungle out there and kids have the wildest imaginations! We need to let their imaginations run wild and free to confidently and fearlessly make sense of the world around them.
Let's ask our children this question, "What would you do if you had your way in creating animals differently?". Sit back an enjoy the wacky, wild and magical answers you'll get.
