birthday month give-away - How Tiger Says Thank You!

For the past month I've been sharing reviews of products grandmas - and grandpas, moms and dads, might like - especially with Mother's Day and Children's Day coming up. I've also announced some fun give-aways for my, "Month of Birthday Give-Aways". Today I have one final review and give-away to share with you and then in three days, on Friday, May 1, 2015, the fun begins! First, my review . . . 

Yesterday I shared my review of How Penguin Says, "Please!"and announced a give-away as well. Today I'm happy to share with you another book in this series - How Tiger Says "Thank you!"

How Tiger Says Thank You! 
Author - Abigail Samoun
Illustrator - Sarah Watts
Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 2-4

Favorite Features -
  • Fun book teaches children how to say, "thank you" in eight languages (including English - also, French, Russian, Egyptian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish)
  • Excellent and interesting illustrations
  • Sturdy board book - will hold up to little hands 
  • Encourages an interest in learning other languages
  • Includes info on how to pronounce "please" in each language
Sterling Children's Books says; "Spasibo, arigato, shukran, merci! Tiger's taking a trip—and everywhere she goes, from the market in Moscow to a boat on Egypt's Nile River, she says "thank you" to the friendly people she meets. And, as they follow her round the world, children will learn to how to say thanks in seven different languages, too: French, Russian, Arabic, Hindi, Mandarin, Japanese, and Spanish. Each “thank you” is translated and has a pronunciation guide; and an illustrated map follows Tiger's travels."

When How Tiger Says Thank You! arrived, the boys were at my house, so they opened the package. Josiah sat right down and started reading it to his brothers. As each country and "thank you" in each language was read, Caleb also had to say, "thank you" in the appropriate language and name the country as well! As with How Penguin Says, "Please!", this book had their attention from the start and left them wanting more! A book which had a six and three year old to be so interested in learning something - in this case other languages - is definitely a book worth having available for them to learn from! I loved the illustrations and the boys found the world map at the end of the book very interesting as well! 

As you read How Tiger Says Thank You! with your grandchildren, consider involving them in praying for the people in other countries and for missionaries to teach them about Jesus!

I'm so happy Sterling not only sent How Tiger Says Thank You! for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)! The give-away will be on May 28, 2015, so if you are over the age of 18 and would like to be in the drawing for How Tiger Says Thank You!, please comment below to let me know where you would like to travel in this big world, if you were able to do so.
