All Around the World


Little Treasures: Endearments from Around the World words by Jacqueline K. Ogburn, pictures by Chris Raschka is an enchanting book about endearments in fourteen different languages.  
I like that there is pronunciation help under each endearment not in English.  
The illustrations are ink, watercolor, and gouache.  The pictures are lively and full of color and playfulness.  
Raschka is a two-time Caldecott medal winner and he has won the Caldecott honor once.
Here is his biography from the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature.
