How Animals Move
An eagle soars, a fish swims, a porpoise leaps, and two giraffes walk through the grassland. Seventeen animals each do their thing, introducing young children to the expressive potential of Lao vocabulary. (English doesn't have a word that means "to move by humping up your back"; Lao does.)
Eye-catching photographs, of both familiar and unfamiliar animals, add to the book's appeal. Older sisters and brothers who are learning English can read this with younger children, and both will expand their word skills.
