Dogs in Christmas Jumpers – level 2

19-12-2017 07:00

Save the Children is an international organisation, which promotes children’s rights. The 15th December is Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

In England, people can pay two pounds to help the organisation, wear a silly Christmas sweater and have fun. Then the charity realised that dogs can wear sweaters and have fun, too!

Then hundreds of dogs met in a park in London. They had fun and broke the record for the most dogs wearing Christmas jumpers.

Difficult words: promote (support, help, make better), children’s rights (the idea that children must be protected).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
