November Club Pack
The clocks have changed, the air is getting colder, and the pitter patter of the holiday season can be heard fast approaching.
Though the winter weather has arrived for another year, our Yoto Club members have their November Yoto Club packs to help them make the most of these shorter days. This month we featured two brand new exclusive audio cards and a new calendar with colouring sheets and activities to enjoy. We tickled our tongues with Tongue Twister Day on the 8th of November, and challenged our members to Kindness Bingo to celebrate World Kindness Day on the 13th.
Curious which cards our Club members received? Read on for an insight into the exclusive audio content they’ve been enjoying this month (before even hitting the card store!).

Animal Stories by Enid Blyton
From Britain’s favourite childhood author comes a fantastic collection of 30 (yes, 30!) short stories all about amazing animals. Enid Blyton takes us on a magical journey around the world as we meet creatures of all different shapes and sizes who come roaring to life through Simon Slater and Sandra Ducan’s playful narration. From woodland wildlife and garden birds, to bumblebees, goldfish, and even cows that lose their moo’s, Blyton finds a way to incorporate important lessons of friendship and growth into each of these whimsical and clever tales. This card is sure to make an animal lover out of any little one, and is perfect for family listening.

Cookie and the Most Annoying Girl in the World by Konnie Huq
Konnie Huq’s hilarious heroine, Cookie, is back and even more full of smarts and girl power than before -- this time with a side of saving the planet. In the second brilliantly funny story in the series (sequel to ‘Cookie and the Most Annoying Boy in the World’), things have actually been going well for Cookie, and her best friends Keziah and Jake. Until, however, the new girl at school steals Cookie’s idea for a ‘Save the Planet’ birthday party! Worst still, she’s convinced that she and Cookie are the best of friends - how perfectly annoying! Yet somehow Cookie manages to fall out with her real best friends. Can she win them back and save the planet in the process? Wonderfully wicked yet humorously harmless, you’ll love Cookie’s silliness and relatability as you jump into another brilliant adventure with her and her friends.
