Meerkat Mail

Get out a large suitcase from the spare room, fill it with cushions, and sit your little one right in the middle of it before reading aloud from the beautifully illustrated Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett. Sunny the meerkat is a young adventurer with a great love of eating beetles on toast (with insect larvae… Yum). He lives in the dry, hot Kalahari Desert, but he has been starting to get itchy feet. He wants a different lifestyle, with new experiences, until – that is – he finds himself inside very new experiences. A charming tale about discovering that often, home and the safety of family is far too underrated.
