We are thrilled to announce a brand new bilingual children’s book! Mungo Makes New Friends is sure to be a hit with the kids in your classroom and family.
Mungo Makes New Friends
Mungo Makes New Friends is a story about an old horse who, at first, is quite lonely on his own. He has seen better days, and thinks there isn’t much to look forward to. One by one, Mungo and the reader are introduced to brand new animal friends. However, when winter comes, and Mungo must move into the stable, what will happen to his newfound friendships?
This lovely story about the joys of friendship is written by Gill Aitchison. Jill Newton creates the story’s beautiful illustrations, set in the Scottish Highlands.
Read Mungo Makes New Friendswith the children in your family or classroom, and open up a discussion about the value of friendship, and the importance of inclusion. They will love to follow along with the adventures of Mungo and his friends, while also building their literacy skills.
Mungo Makes New Friends is available in English with Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Farsi, French, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Nepali, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovakian and Spanish.

Most of us are preparing to give thanks for our blessings on Thanksgiving. We at Language Lizard are grateful for all the work you do to promote language learning and multicultural education in the classroom and at home.
This year, we are thinking beyond Thanksgiving and the Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping deals that follow. We are proud to be joining the many organizations around the world celebrating #GivingTuesday. We’d like to help you get involved too!
What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday was founded by New York’s 92nd Street Y, in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, as a global movement involving over 10,000 organizations. As their website states, “We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.”
