Synopsis

How Penguin Says Please! by Abigail Samoun

Por favor, s'il vous plait, ching: this adorable board book teaches preschoolers how to say 'please' in seven languages! Join Penguin as she enjoys pastries in France, explores the Hermitage in Russia, sees Mount Fuji in Japan and the Pyramids in Egypt, buys fish in China, sips chai in India, visits relatives in Argentina - and remembers her manners everywhere she goes! Each 'please' word is translated and has a pronunciation guide, and an illustrated map follows Penguin's travels round the world.

Reviews

A brief, age-appropriate introduction to eight common world languages for toddler travelers. . . . Good manners travel well in this board book for preschool linguists.
