One World, One Day

This beautiful photo book follows the course of one day in our world. Sunrise to sunset is captured in the essential things we all do daily, wherever we live in the world, and in the different ways we do them. The first meal of the day will take on a whole new dimension for American kids as an American pancake breakfast is contrasted with porridge in North Korea and churros in Spain.

Mung-Mung: A Foldout Book of Animal Sounds

Dogs say woof-woof, don’t they? Not in Korean they don’t (mung-mung). Take a trip around the world with this clever international guide to animal noises. Each spread presents a variety of sounds little ones will enjoy imitating. Older kids will delight in trying to guess the animal. Lift the flap to see whimsical illustrations of, for instance, a purple circus horse (ee-ha-ha in Polish). In this enchanting peek-a-boo book babies can imitate animal sounds in 19 languages. What kind of animal says GAV-GAV in Russian, Bo-Bo in Hindi, and WOW-WOW in Spanish? Make a guess, then lift the flap.
