Today we heard the author of The Lion and the Little Red Bird read her story to a young girl in who was in hospital. Have a look at the video. In the story the lion and the bird become friends, even though they can't speak to each other.
The story is all about making new friends. It tells us that being kind and smiling helps us make new friends, even if we can't speak the same language. It tells us that our body language, what we say and how we act are all important when we want to make and keep friends. We practised using our faces (and no words) to show people how we are feeling.
And we showed how we could get people to understand us by using our hands and not our words.
