Spasibo, arigato, shukran, merci! Tiger's taking a trip- and everywhere she goes, from the market in Moscow to a boat on Egypt's Nile River, she says 'thank you' to the friendly people she meets. And, as they follow her round the world, children will learn to how to say thanks in seven different languages, too: French, Russian, Arabic, Hindi, Mandarin, Japanese, and Spanish. Each 'thanks' word is translated and has a pronunciation guide, and an illustrated map follows Tiger's travels.
Children will learn to how to say thanks in seven different languages as they follow Tiger round the world. An illustrated map follows Tiger's travels. Suitable for children aged 2 to 4.
