When my Sister used to live interstate (not overseas as she does now) we always used David Jones Hampers - they have cold hampers as well and include things like salmon, turkey etc as well as traditional nibbles etc. Plenty of choose from - but dont know what their cut off dates are. http://shop.davidjones.com.au/djs/en/david...istmas/hampers#
Edited to say I cant see the "cold" type of hampers they had in past years.
Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
