Around the World in 18 Ways (Hardcover)
Read along and learn some polite ways to interact with people from all over the world. Whether you and your children travel abroad or stay right at home, a few key words could be the ticket to understanding other cultures. Come along as we follow the map around the world and learn how to say Hello, Good-bye, Please and Thank You in 18 languages.
When you travel it is a wonderful thing to show respect for the people and customs of the countries you visit. One easy way to do that is to learn a few simple words or phrases from their local language. You will receive lots of praise and encouragement when you know a few polite things to say. People open up and interact on a much different level if you give their language a try. This book gives a fantastic start to a few languages around the world, and is a great jumping off point to teach children about other languages and cultures.--Vanita Oelschlager.
