Description

Explore the lives of children all over the world and celebrate one of humanity's greatest achievements: written and verbal language. With fully illustrated word charts, featuring children depicted in their home country and doing ordinary things, learn about more than 100 languages, from well-known and lesser known indigenous languages that introduce us to some of the world's most remote communities. With foreword by ethnobotanist and explorer, Professor Wade Davis, this unique book comes with a free, downloadable app for iOS and Android that allows you to hear the phrases in the book, each recorded by a native speaker.
