Wouldn't it be fun to venture to Italy with your kids - and listen to them speak Italian? Reel off uno, due,tre, quattro? And la zucca (pumpkin)? Might be fun to learn a few key Italian phrases - just for fun - even if you're not planning to venture far from home.
Giuliana Sica and Steven Kermen have collaborated (Sica's the writer; Kermen's the illustrator) to produce a charming book, Impariamo l'Italiano Con l'Aiuto della Mano! Let's learn Italian with the help of our hand!, published by a niche Seattle publishing company, Gemelli Press, that turns out Italian-inspired works. Only. Impariamo l'Italiano aims to educate parents and children in Italian at the beginner level.
E parliamo in Italiano!
