Why not read our new story about Brazil and the World Cup from Forty Winks while you wait…
The Global Sleepover is a children’s story series about global adventures! In every story, our four main characters go on a world adventure. During these adventures they learn about global cultures, imagination, critical thinking and collaboration.
In Sleepover at the World Cup, Noah can practice football all night and day and then again all day and night! He is quite excited for an adventure at the World Cup with his friend Clive. After the World Cup championship, Clive and Noah meet Fernão. Fernão is from Brazil and stumps Noah and Clive with a clever riddle. Do you know what twists and turns to the tune of samba? What soars high in the sky and has touched the floors of the Amazon jungle and the shores of the vast Brazilian coast?
