Miramar Beach, FL (Vocus/PRWEB) February 11, 2011
From co-authors Antoinette Falquier Harned and Susan Mangano Thirolle comes a unique treat that young readers can enjoy and learn from. ARTHUR TOAD ARTUR CRAPAUD ARTURO SAPO is a wonderful trilingual book that will jumpstart their knowledge of other languages—English, French and Spanish.
Feeling ill after having eaten too many insects, Arthur Toad is left home alone while his family is out. His mother forbids him to leave the house but boredom leads him to go out and take in some fresh air. As he happily frolics about, he hears a soft cry and beneath a tree, he finds a rag doll, Miranda. She looks very weak with her sawdust falling out from a hole in her side. Arthur is determined to do something to help her and formulates a plan that involves other creatures.
A Unique trilingual 21st century children's book, ARTHUR TOAD ARTUR CRAPAUD ARTURO SAPO follows the young toad’s adventure as he looks for a way to help his friend. But to fix Miranda, he would require help from other insects like Mrs. Ant and Mrs. Spider. Will they help him?
Filled with vibrant illustrations, this delightful picture book imparts valuable lessons to children, at the same time teaching them new languages. If they like Beatrix Potter, they will surely love ARTHUR TOAD ARTUR CRAPAUD ARTURO SAPO.
This book will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
