How to Count 1 to 5 in Five Languages Review

Featured Books for 3+ readers Featured Books for 5+ readers First Concepts

Lovely to look at, this is an effective way of learning to count up to five, and in five different languages too. Each page features a child, who each speaks a different language: Spanish, Mandarin, English, French and Japanese. A special panel down the side features little vignettes of their faces, press them and you can hear the children counting to five in their own language. Readers will quickly be joining in, and there’s lots more to hold their attention on the pages too, as well as extra phrases to try out. An ingenious method of putting the fun into language learning, and a way of showing children how much they share with other nationalities, even though we all speak different languages.  ~ Andrea Reece


How to Count 1 to 5 in Five Languages Synopsis

Meet children that speak different languages around the world and count with them, from Santiago, who speaks Spanish and counts five oranges, to Marie, who speaks French and counts five penguins. A chunky board book format with push-button sounds along the side, plus gorgeous art from best-selling illustrator Kenard Pak, makes this a great first language primer for curious kids.
