The Captain’s Corner – November, 2022
1 November, 2022
Hello! This is Mike, your pilot speaking, here to share your monthly StoryCaptain recap.
We’re cruising steadily on our way to Thanksgiving and the holiday season. During a time frequently filled with travel, we’re excited to take you up up up in the air. For some little ones, planes are a bit scary, for others they’re awe-inspiring. Wherever your little ones fall, there’s something for them to enjoy in these stories as this month’s box includes books that both help them prepare for and understand flying and encourage them to follow their dreams.
To fully immerse yourself and your little one in the skies above, check out these crafting activities to help you prepare for takeoff!
