Good morning lovely folks. This week we will look at a different story everyday! Today we will look at one chapter from Mary Poppins by PL Travers. The book is quite different to the film and this chapter shows some special powers Mary has which are not in the beloved movie. For those who don't know about Mary Poppins, the story is set around 100 years ago in London and is about a magical nanny called Mary Poppins who flies in on her umbrella and looks after the children at 17 Cherry Tree Lane. Sit back and enjoy listening to this chapter and then try some of the activities below.
