A full-color photograph book describing the joys and benefits of learning more than one language.
A review from "Today's Librarian" states
"Overflowing with color photographs of families from around the world, the book tells of the delights and experiences that can result from knowing more than one language.The book begins with how to learn a second language, then focuses on five bilingual children n their day-to-day experiences. There is also a colorful list of
more than 600 languages to emphasize the breadth of diversity in the world. The children featured in the book speak English as well as Spanish, Hmong and Tagalog. This book could also be enlightening for English-only speaking children who live in a community with many bilingual children."
From "Multicultural Review"
"This picture book can be read over and over to children. We are introduced to bilingual children who speak Spanish, Hmong and Tagalog in addition to English. We are shown beautiful pictures of the children and their families and pets in everyday situations and activities. Children are introduced not only to languages other than English, but also to various traditions and cultures of diverse people. With this book, the author succeeds in explaining to children how they learn languages, what it means to be bilingual, and the importance of languages in their everyday lives. The photographs depict to young readers a world in which languages are a natural and integral part of their environment."
