This wonderful book has been designed to inspire children with an interest in the amazingly rich diversity of languages spoken across the world. It’s divided by continent with an introduction to each section that briefly explains the origins of the different languages spoken there, followed by pages of beautiful illustrations of children who are native speakers, addressing the reader with a friendly greeting. Those who download the special free app will be able to hear the phrases spoken – there are more than thirty for North and Central America alone. Every little child looks real and appealing, the kind of person you’d want to have a conversation with. A special book that celebrates one of the greatest of mankind’s achievements. ~ Andrea Reece
