What is in the box?
Find out about some of the things that are put in:
What is a sari?
Where have you heard about a Chinese dragon before?
Does a snowman's belly rumble? How do you know?
Where is Lake Lucerne?
What is an electric fish? Is it real?
What is Gujarati? And can wishes be violet?
Have you got an ancient uncle?
What is the fifth season?
How did the sun become black?
What does 'My box is fashioned from ice and gold and steel' mean?
What does the box look like?
Where can you go in it?
Draw a picture of the box or some of the things that are in it.
