Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is a great way to introduce the many similarities and interests of children around the world. . . . An appropriate and fun way for students to experiment with various languages." –SLJ School Library Journal
Children's Literature - Jane Jessell
Ciao! Let us share a day at school and home with a friendly cat and his cheerful bunch of international pals. Using second person narration, the reader becomes the cat and is immediately drawn into the action, as twelve common phrases are introduced in twelve different languages. Brightly colored front endpapers greet the reader ("Ola" and "Privet" and "Konnichiwa") and the final endpapers say goodbye ("Adios" and "Auf Weidersehen" and "Ma'a Salama"). In between, we learn how to say "please" and "thank you" in Spanish and Zulu and Hindi. We follow the cat through a visit to the library, lunch at the school cafeteria, a game at recess, and home at the end of the day. Each page is organized the same way, with text on one side and energetic drawings on the other. Additionally, each word is spelled phonetically to make pronunciation easier for the reader. A map of the world is included, with dots to show where each of these languages is currently spoken. A good selection for schools with an international population or for use by classes in English as a Second Language, Evans has created an entertaining way to learn the basics of new languages. Das Ende!
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This book is a great way to introduce the many similarities and interests of children around the world. Readers follow the main character, a catlike animal that walks on two legs, throughout his day at home and school as he interacts with various children using common phrases. Each phrase is represented on a spread consisting of a simple verse that introduces readers to the action; the words in German, Hebrew, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Hindi, Chinese, Zulu, Japanese, Italian, French, and Portuguese; pronunciations; and an illustration. The text utilizes common courtesies such as: "Good morning," "How are you?," "Thank you," "Please," etc. Flat, cartoon-style illustrations done in bright colors reinforce action and concepts. The last spread features a map and a list of countries illustrating where the languages are officially spoken. An appropriate and fun way for students to experiment with various languages.-Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The subtitle tells (nearly) all. Father cat, in full human dress, sends his young son off on the first day of school with a big backpack and a bit of advice: "Learn to greet the whole wide world." The youngster does, in 12 two-page examples. Each begins with a poem that introduces the relevant phrase, which is then presented in 12 different languages: German, Hebrew, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Hindi, Chinese, Zulu, Japanese, Italian, French and Portuguese. Phrases are accompanied by helpful pronunciation guides. The illustrations, which resemble children's artwork, put the young hero into situations where he might use the chosen phrase: "please" in the cafeteria line, for example. A color-coded map shows 91 places where the languages are spoken. An inviting language introduction for young readers, following up the team's Can You Count Ten Toes? Count to Ten in Ten Different Languages (1999). (Picture book. 5-9)
