Children are sure to be attracted to the beautiful illustration of the friendly hippo and happy monkey, which will draw them into the book Bentley Hippo's First Multilingual Words: Colors and Shapes in 5 Languages. This book is part of a series of Bentley Hippo’s First Multilingual Words books. This book will help children learn new words and how to spell them. Whether you’re learning English, French, Spanish, German, or Serbian, this book provides illustrations to help you recognize new words, and you can play a game while reading the book. For example, there are questions like: “Do you see something that is yellow?”; “I spy with my little eyes something that is blue”; or “Can you find a triangle?” Authors Argyro Graphy and Djordje Susa combine their love of languages with the need to help children learn new words.

I love the beautiful illustrations of the hippo, monkey, and other animals with their shaded, animated style, and children will too. The artwork helps to illustrate words and keep children focused. Colors and Shapes in 5 Languages will help children see a word, spell the word, and then be able to find it in their house or nearby. This engaging book will help children and others learn a new language and spot the similarities between some languages and apply it to what they know. This colorful book will be helpful for teachers or parents learning another language. What color is Marty the lion or Bentley the hippo? There are so many games and interactive components to this colorful introduction to languages. Because this book contains five languages, it will help children to recognize and appreciate other countries and celebrate their differences too.
