Introduce young children to the names of animals with these bright and lively trilingual — English, French, Spanish — board books. Hurry Up! and it’s companion book Don’t Move are ideal board books for very young children. With only one word per page, simple, bold illustrations, and a surprise ending in both, these books can be used to expose toddlers to the names of animals. Those featured include common ones like lion or monkey, but there are also ones that may be new to children, like iguana or pink flamingo. In Hurry Up!, the animals gather one by one until they’re all assembled on the last page to listen to a story. Similarly, in Don’t Move!, the animals come together to have their photo taken. The name of each animal is presented in English, French, and Spanish, so whether parents/caregivers are native speakers or want to expose their children early to a foreign language, these two board books are just the thing.
