How Penguin Says Please!, How Tiger Says Thank You! - bookwraps for you

Unwrapping two books for you today that go together like two peas in a pod...


By Abigail Samoun

Illustrated by Sarah Watts

Ages 2-5

Unwrapping the illustrations randomly...

   Penguin and Tiger travel the world and teach pre-schoolers how to say please and thank you in eight different languages.  Your little one can learn those important magical words in French, Russian, Arabic, Hindi, Mandarin, Japanese, Spanish and English.  And please no worries big people ... each word is translated and a handy pronunciation guide is provided so both you and your child can relax and enjoy learning the new languages.  

   A full-colored travel map is included at a the end so you can discover the locations of the different countries.  

  These books are part of the "Little Traveler Series". The author offers you a very clever and fun way to teach your child new words in many different languages. The kid-friendly illustrations are colourful and playful. The word bubbles make the characters come alive as they speak.  I know your child will be excited and want to read the books time and time again. It is always fun to place an educational book in the hands of a toddler.  These books are board books so they are made for wee kids to handle and enjoy.  I recommend this series. 

Previous books in the series are:

About the author ...

Before co-founding Red Fox Literary, LLC with Karen Grencik in 2011, ABIGAIL SAMOUN was an in-house children’s book editor for over ten years. Her books received such honors as the CCBC Charlotte Zolotow award, the New York Public Library Ezra Jack Keats award, the SCBWI Golden Kite, and the Pura Belpre Honor. As an agent, Abigail now represents authors and illustrators working in a range of genres, from board books to young adult novels. Her clients include author/illustrator Hannah Harrison whose debut, Extraordinary Jane, received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and School Library Journal. Harrison’s picture book was Red Fox’s first project to go to auction. Fellow clients Chris Pallace and Kevin Serwacki wrote and illustrated Joey and Johnny, the Ninjas, an illustrated middle-grade series that received four offers before being bought by Donna Bray at HarperCollins/Balzer&Bray.

In addition to agenting, Abigail is the author of several children’s books, including Sterling Publishing’s Little Traveler board book series illustrated by Red Fox’s own Sarah Watts.
Abigail likes to organize her library according to which authors would get along well together (the Brontes next to George Elliot, Lois Lowry next to Margaret Atwood). She lives in Sonoma, California with her entomologist husband, two dogs, a gaggle of chickens, and a curious little boy named Tristan. 

Read on and read always!
