PBS KIDS Turn the Key: Around the World

This interactive board book is a genuine adventure of fun and learning, one through which kids glean fascinating facts about the peoples and customs of faraway lands while learning new words (and their pronunciations) in a variety of languages. Gorgeous full color photographs display abodes of all sorts - a ger (pronounced gair) in Mongolia, a woonark (VOHN-ark) in Amsterdam, a bamboo house in Bangladesh, and more. To discover who's inside each home, the reader has only to grasp the yellow plastic key attached to the book's cover, insert it in the keyhole on the page, and swing open the door. This inventive approach to exploring other cultures adds an element of excitement and surprise that kids simply adore! And because the happy inhabitants of these family-oriented homes always include children, young readers quickly see that while we may differ in customs and appearance, we are all the same!
