Thanks Joan - you rock!
This is a photo of one of the best presents Sophie got. I think I want to buy 100 of them (if I could) and give them to all my friends with kids (of all ages). I have actually no idea where my friend Joan bought it from, but every single time Sophie and I play with it, I mentally thank my friend for this incredibly thoughtful gift.
It's an English-French map of the world in large foam jig-saw pieces. A present from Godmother Joan. We have used it again and again for a variety of uses. After Sophie got bored of identifying countries and capitals, we started putting the wooden animals from her Noah's Ark onto the map, roughly from wherever we think these animals come from.
What cracks me up is that she always puts the duck on Beijing !
