Travel the world with your favorite animals—and learn basic phrases in eight popular languages! This adorable boxed set features the first four Little Traveler books: How Hippo Says Hello, How Gator Says Good-Bye, How Tiger Says Thank You, and How Penguin Says Please. Every phrase is translated and has a pronunciation guide, and the last spread of each book offers an illustrated map of the animal’s journey, so readers can follow along. Perfectly sized for little hands, and packed in a convenient Velcro case with an easy-to-hold plastic handle, these board books are a wonderful introduction to different cultures and places.
