Animals Speak

UnknownDid you know a dog in Ireland says “Bhuf”? A bee says, “Surr” in Swedish? Pigs in Bosnia say “Rok”? Animals around the world can unite because we humans now have a handy-dandy translation picture book for all of the animal sounds.

Swahili, Thai, Farsi–it’s all in here, along with a cool pronunciation chart that includes the flags of each language’s representative country and animal pictures for easy reference. (That means the United Kingdom gets English, not Canada, Australia or the USA.)

Bring your copy of Lila Prap‘s Animals Speak along on all your world travels and stun everyone, human and not, with your language savvy.
