Learn how to say “I love you” in ten different languages with this heartwarming board book. “I love you” may sound different around the world, but the meaning is the same. From China, to France, to Russia, to Brazil, and beyond, this charming board book features “I love you” in ten different languages. Tapping into the emotions that parents feel for their children, the rhyming text is accompanied by sweet artwork that depicts different cultures around the world.
Awesome concept! The rhymes help with guiding you how to pronounce “I love you” in all the different languages, and the illustrations subtly show elements of each different culture that you can talk about your little one as you read through the book.
I absolutely LOVE this book. It teaches you how to say “I love you” in different languages, displays many different cultures, and is a great book about diversity.
