Cute little book about words used in a variety of languages to show love from pumpkin to poppet and beyond. The illustrations by Raschka are crayon like (think Hello Goodbye Window) but do not show much uniqueness between different countries. The same phrase is repeated for almost every country "...parents love their children very much, they use endearments such as..." and may feel too repetitive. Pronunciations are given for foreign languages. This book would be wonderful one on one with a child.
