"Learn to say, “I Love You” in French, Japanese, Mandarin, English and Spanish with this press and listen board book! Meet a child from each country who loves a different person, from George in England who loves his dog to Jia in China who loves her brother. Buttons on the side of the book allow children to listen to the phrase in each language. "

Review: This is one of those sweet children's books where the illustrations are lovely, there's a great meaning behind them, and it also teaches your children other cultures as well as languages. The book teaches you how to say I Love You in English, Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin, and French. My daughter and I have flipped through this one several times. She's only 16 months old, but she loves that she can pick it up with ease (it's very lightweight), and turn the pages. I will say she struggles a bit with pressing the speaking buttons. They're a little harder than other "musical" button books we've tried. Also, the audio is a bit muffled and difficult to understand. It takes a bit, but you end up getting used to it.

All in all, I do recommend it mostly for the learning experience as well as the illustrations. They're simple but gorgeous.
