Who Talks Funny: A Book about Languages for Kids

Editorial Reviews

Chris Sherman
Scholarly yet readable and packed with fascinating facts about the nature and structure of language, Cox's book will be a valuable resource for students in social studies, language arts (it's a wonderful source for informational speeches), and foreign language classes. Teachers and librarians will like the book, too. It's not the sort of thing most kids will pick up to browse, but if they do, they'll be rewarded with an array of intriguing tidbits--for example, how the days of the week are expressed in 27 languages--as well as some useful general information about languages, how they've developed, elements they share, and why people should learn more than one. Glossary; further resources; bibliography.
