Listen to an audio clip
Feel along the right arm to his trotter, and what do you think he is holding out? Of course, it is a piece of lovely milk chocolate which he is offering to a little girl. Go back down his arm to his broad neck and feel all over his face. Which way is he facing? Yes, his big snout, or nose, tells you that he is looking to the right. Can you feel the tiny dents in the snout? These are his nostrils through which he breathes. At the bottom of his snout you can trace the line of his mouth. Move up from his mouth and you will come to two black dots with black lines over them. These are his eyes and eyebrows.
