Just a wee post to recommend a trip to the glasshouses at The Botanics for anyone local. We went today just because we ended up there for something else but it turned out to be a wonderful afternoons accidental learning! The audio guides have special recordings for kids. As we moved through the different climates the boys had both factual things to listen to and stories from that part of the world. We also saw plants that form a big part of our everyday lives (pineapple, coffee, sugar, tea) but that we can't see anywhere else.
