How Penguin Says Please! and How Tiger Says Thank You!

by Abigail Samoun
illustrated by Sarah Watts

"S'il vous plait?" "Merci!"

Follow Penguin and Tiger around the globe as they teach readers to say please and thank you in seven different languages: French, Russian, Arabic, Hindi, Mandarin, Japanese, and Spanish.

Watts' sweet illustrations depict lovely scenes from far-off countries, including a market in Moscow, a boat on Egypt's Nile River, and a Chinese fish market. Each foreign world includes a pronunciation guide, and an illustrated map of the world follows both animals' travels.

My Thoughts:
These are such neat little books! It's like going on a world adventure, learning new things and seeing new site... without ever having to leave home! My little sponges are have such a great time learning new languages and practicing their manners.  The illustrations are great and give a colorful and fun view into what different parts of the world look like. It's a fun learning experience!
