A special bumper edition featuring two books in one; a fun story in English teaches 50 words in Ukrainian and then the same story is repeated in Ukrainian to teach 50 English words.
This is a heartwarming and funny bilingual children's book with a difference that will help Ukrainian-speaking children to learn English and English-speaking children to learn Ukrainian.
In the original version of the story, little mouse walks into the Lost & Found, but can only speak Ukrainian. How will Mr and Mrs Frog figure out what the mouse is missing…? Aimed at children aged 2 - 7, the unique ‘Story-powered language learning method’ combines humour, story and emotion to gently introduce kids to more than forty simple and fun Ukrainian words and phrases.
In the translated Ukrainian version of the story, little mouse walks into the Lost & Found, but can only speak English. How will Mr and Mrs Frog figure out what the mouse is missing…? Aimed at children aged 2 - 7, the unique ‘Story-powered language learning method’ combines humour, story and emotion to gently introduce Ukrainian-speaking kids to more than forty simple and fun English words and phrases.
The majority of the text is in one language, with English / Ukrainian words and phrases slipped in as the story progresses. Having a main character who only speaks in the new language helps to build empathy and a positive attitude towards people who speak different languages.
The Fabulous Lost & Found and the Little Ukrainian Mouse is an ideal story to share with young children being introduced to English or Ukrainian for the first time. A list of the Ukrainian and English words and phrases from the story are shown at the back of the book, together with their translations.
It would be useful if the parent, teacher or caregiver reading this story had some knowledge of Ukrainian to be able to pronounce the Ukrainian words correctly, although pronunciation guides are provided for the Ukrainian words taught in the English version of the story.
