This week the children have started their new book Handa’s Surprise. In the story a little girl carries a basket of fruit to the neighbouring village to give to her friend. Handa carries an avocado, a banana, a guava, a mango, an orange, a passion fruit and a pineapple in her basket.
The children enjoyed looking and touching the different fruit throughout the week. Today we tasted some of the fruit from Handa’s Surprise. Many of the children enjoyed the oranges, bananas, mangos and tangerines. Some children said the pineapple was “too sour” or the avocado was “too mushy.”
