About this deal

Meg’s Eggs storyboards– Choose between 4 different versions of this story board. Excellent practise for sequencing skills, literacy skills and consolidating key language from the story. The suggestions help inspire interactive ways to retell the story. Now she is flourishing. Beautiful feathers, emaculate claws, curtesy of the parlour, and such a witty personality. Her beak is still mishapen but she can still eat and The Humans make sure she gets her share. Helen Nicoll was a television producer with the BBC for many years. It was here, as Producer of the children's educational series WATCH, that she first met Jan Pienkowski. After working together for four years, they decided it was time to preserve their creativity in book form for future generations of children to enjoy. The result is the immensely popular MEG AND MOG series. At the beginning of the year, the area we live with The Humans, was hit by a disease called "Bird Flu". The Humans built a big shelter and run but the longer it went on the more bored we got. They tried to keep us occupied with different things, swings, straw bails, CDs and of course our favourite, cabbage pinata (for those non-EU types, cabbage on a string). Numbers Jigsaws – Choose one of the three options in either a game or craft activity to make an attractive Meg and Mog jigsaw while practising numbers, sequencing and key language from the story at the same time.

The weather has been getting gradually colder here in The Garden and on several mornings I have seen the human who looks like Julia Roberts, defrosting the water. We are nice and warm in our coop and have the new Coop Central Heating, which means we can control the temperature from wherever we are in The Garden. We have seen many things here in The Garden, some happy and some sad. We have had an influx of adolescents. They hang around the rough grass end of The Garden chatting and wondering what on earth the world is all about. Meg’s Eggs is a fun story that will appeal to toddlers and preschoolers but is also a great book for preschoolers and developing readers. The chaos of Doris is finally over, the fallen tree is down and some lovely grubs fell into our coop. I have been getting very friendly with Wilemmina. She was so quiet when she first arrived and I didn't really know her. She was such a scrawny little thing when she arrived. No feathers, beak all out of line and the longest claws I have ever seen.Well summer has definiately disappeared and there is a chill in the air in The Garden. Thankfully we are all able to snuggle together and keep warm in our Coops. At night the New Arrivals had no idea what to do, bless them, they were all huddled up in a corner together keeping warm. The Humans had to come out and put them into the coop and bed. The next day there was no sign of the New Arrival. Charlie Cokerel spent nearly 2 hours standing outside their run Cokerdooling to get them up and out. He was actually very sweet coaxing them out and then walking round their run until they came out. Coloring sheets– Choose between 6 different worksheets and follow the activity suggestions to make this activity as interactive and language rich as you like. Meg’s Eggs has a very simple, easy to read text which is great for beginner readers. I like the way that speech bubbles move the story along and enhance the simple sentences. The rhyming spells add to the humour and I love the use of onomatopoeia. The illustrations on the double spreads are colourful, bold and humorous and will appeal to toddlers who will enjoy the board book version. My daughter likes copying the simple pictures, she especially likes drawing Owl.

There are surprises galore for Meg, Mog and Owl in these three classic Meg and Mog stories: Meg's Eggs, Meg at Sea and Mog in the Fog. As ever, Meg casts her spells with the best of intentions but always with hilarious results. Children will love exploring the colours, sounds and shapes in this bumper volume, perfect for sharing or reading alone.

The spell doesn’t go as planned, the eggs are too big and hard to eat. In the middle of the night three dinosaurs hatch. Meg’s spell to save them from being eaten by the Tyrannosaurus causes all three dinosaurs to shrink. I hope you have had a great summer. We have here in The Garden. We had lots of visitors from the human world and enjoyed some sunbathing and dust baths. I enjoyed reading the Meg and Mog stories as a child and had several in the book box in my first classroom. We recently inherited some of the books and now my daughter is enjoying them, she loves Meg’s spells as they never work quite as they should!

Meg Goes to Bed is the latest of the iconic MEG and MOG picture books that continue to delight children up to the age of 3 with the brightly coloured and spellbinding antics of Meg the witch, Mog her cat and Owl. The humans have tried to keep us occupied, we have new logs, corn on strings and some CD's we can play. My favourite is one with S Club 7 written on, it makes a great sound when I place my beak on it and spin it round. The other girls have made up a dance to it and this passes the time. We have also noticed the big dog has one of her legs in a plaster cast, apparently she got injured and has had to have a piece of metal put into her leg. Doesn't seem to have had an effect on her barking though.This week they have surpassed themselves. Cabbage, yes cabbage, better than bird burgers or caviar. urn:lcp:megseggs0000nico_x7p0:epub:42e6230c-dfbf-4703-8f7b-f366e1658723 Foldoutcount 0 Identifier megseggs0000nico_x7p0 Identifier-ark ark:/13960/t79t1v752 Invoice 1652 Isbn 9780141338873

Mog and Owl are hungry, so Meg makes a spell. It goes wrong and they all go to bed without any supper, but Mog and Owl are still hungry... Reading Meg’s Eggs has led to discussions about eggs hatching and discovering which animals and birds come out of eggs. It also stimulated a discussion about dinosaurs, what they eat, what their teeth look like and the difference between herbivores and carnivores.

We have had an odd start to this year, in December Bird Flu hit the UK and as a result we have to live in a pen the humans have built for us. It's quite big and spacious but it's not the same as being able to roam freely round The Garden and I haven't had a chance to wander up The Drive for a while. I also haven't been able to hide my eggs from the humans!!
