Mungo Makes New Friends: New Bilingual Book!

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 Friends with 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.

Charitable Program Provides Bilingual Books in Spanish, Arabic and Kurdish to Language Learners

Language Lizard and our colleagues at Mantra Lingua UK were honored to support a recent charity initiative of eClinicalWorks, to provide literacy materials to thousands of dual language families in Tennessee.

eClinicalWorks, a leading healthcare technology solutions company, assembled book kits for children in the Metro Nashville Public Schools.  Spanish, Arabic and Kurdish speaking families received two of our most popular bilingual books in English and their home language: The Little Red Hen and the Grains of Wheat and The Giant Turnip

It is a great gift when corporations are able to support the literacy development of dual language learners. We appreciate their spirit of giving and wish everyone a wonderful holiday season. Remember #GivingTuesday!

Note: If you know any companies that would like to partner with Language Lizard to support dual language learners, please ask them to contact us. In certain situations, company logos can be included on books.
