- The dad in this video gives his daughter plenty of time to ask questions about the story and responds in such a positive way. Why not try using your voice to express emotion and add drama to the story?
- Ask your child what makes them laugh. Can you make each other laugh? Why not try and make some of the funny faces from the story at each other?
- Using the pictures in Penguin's speech bubble ask your child to see if they can tell you the story.
- Ben is initially disappointed because his Penguin won't talk to him. Ask if your child has ever been disappointed with a present. What did they do?
