My dog socks
An ordinary dog becomes extraordinary through the magic of a child's imagination. While most people think Socks is just an ordinary dog, through a child's eyes he becomes an enchanted character of many disguises - a chameleon who changes with his environment. One day he's a contented cow rolling in grass, the next a sleek seal basking on rocks, or even a terrible tiger, sprinting from hunters and searching for prey. However, regardless of his many guises Socks offers a dog's unconditional love and loyalty, for 'when he is by my side, he is my best friend'.

Eid al-Adha adventure, The: Peg + Cat
It's Eid al-Adha, a very special holiday for Yasmina and Amir, who invite their friends Peg and Cat to check it out. After they all rock out with some singing, it's time to head to the celebration, where there's so much food waiting! Amir explains that an important part of celebrating Eid al-Adha is dividing the meat into three equal parts, one third to be shared with someone who has less. But with all three bowls of meatballs holding different amounts, they've got a big problem! Thanks to a balancing scale, a trip to a soup kitchen, and an unexpected visit to a housebound neighbour, Peg and Cat learn all about the concept of taking from where there's more and giving to where there's less. Even Cat discovers how awesome giving can be. Eid Mubarak!
