If your child is not such a daredevil, you can stay on the ground and enjoy a few nice summer stories safely on the couch. Especially for the summer holidays, three well-known writers – Tosca Menten, Manon Sikkel and Maren Stoffels – have launched an online platform. A new chapter appears online every holiday week, for group 3&4, group 5&6 and group 7&8.

The stories are set at your child’s own school, because the teacher can fill in the names of the director, janitor and himself. And of course the exciting cliffhanger at the end is not missing.
