About the Book

Whether you and your children travel abroad or simply venture out for a day trip, these key words could be your ticket to (politely) engaging with people from another culture. Follow a map around the world as you learn to say “hello,” “goodbye,” “please,” and “thank you” in 18 different languages.

Around the World in 18 Ways presents a simple, yet important concept in an easy-to-grasp manner for both kids and grownups alike. Readers of all ages will benefit from this basic lesson on social greetings as they learn how to show respect for the social customs of these unique countries.

Each spread highlights one language with these four phrases folded neatly into matching illustrations. It’s fun to view each of the words written in their own alphabet, making it a great jumping-off point for teaching children about other cultures.

This book is also a perfect conversation starter for young kids seeking to bridge the gap between their cultural differences. A travel journal, included in the back of the book, will help further their education with fun facts that expand on this otherwise basic introduction to the world. The best part is that all proceeds from the book will be donated to charity!

Travel plays such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.

Travelnitch is inspiring the next generation of explorers. We believe travel is a wonderful way to ignite the imagination and get kids excited about the world. However, we need your help to make this possible. Please spread the word and support our efforts to raise citizens of the world. Let’s go on this adventure together!
