Carmelita greets her friends, neighbors and family in over 9 different languages. Bonjour! Buenos Dias! Jambo! Ni Hao! With each greeting, the reader meets a new character and visits a different part of Carmelita’s community. The story is simple, which allows the languages presented to take center stage. In addition to Isadora’s trademark oil on paper collage style that elevates the book to more than a mere world-language primer, Isadora includes a helpful glossary at the back with a pronunciation guide. This will have wide appeal- you can use it in a baby or toddler storytime, as well as a preschool class. Wonderful!
