No doubt they will have their own stories to share, or perhaps they might imagine the adventure that their toy had while it was away. Stories like this that have a simple, relatable plot are valuable for getting littlies to tell their own stories, learning to organise their thoughts, sequence the events and build their vocabulary as they describe what happened and how they felt.
