For the little ones: on an adventure!
Summer is the perfect season to go on an adventure. One fine morning, Bill decides to hunt for rainbows. “You’ll need a butterfly net,” Jyn tells him, joining him. “Binoculars and candy,” adds Will, who follows suit. Not to mention a cart to bring back the pot filled with gold, suggests Liz. The four friends will experience a memorable expedition and learn that it’s not the destination that counts, but the journey. To remember on the vacation route.
