On the title page of What is Your Language by Debra Leventhal a little boy is packing a suitcase and holding his red passport.
He is off to make new friends all around the world.
His first stop is London where he asks some children, "What is your language?" and they respond, "My language is English and this is the way it sounds, "Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!"
The pattern continues with him traveling to Germany, France, Russian, Inuktitut, Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, Swahili, and Spanish. Children love patterns like we find in this picture book.
When he tells the children he is going home, they all respond, "No!" in their native language.
The final illustration is the little lying under his world flag comforter with his map-of-the-word rug by his bed. Very cute!
Which brings me to the illustrations.
Monica Wellington does a great job illustrating this adorable book. The children are happy and likable with bright, cheery colors.
When I'm teaching geography, I love to look at language.
