From Albatross to Zoo: An Alphabet Book in Five Languages.

A brightly colored bird searches through a special jungle where each animal is identified in five different languages: English, German, French, Spanish and Italian. Children will delight in the colorful and sometimes zany animals, while learning their names in the five languages. The illustrations are humorous and appealing. Imagine finding an Australian wombat in the same jungle as an elephant or viper. It could only happen at the zoo. This is an excellent book for a multicultural classroom. Ages 4-8.
