‘Wonder Words’ is a collection of words from all over the world. The best part about these words is that they are native and…. wait for it… Untranslatable!
The words have been arranged in Alphabetical order and are supported by a pronunciation guide.
There is a mention of the place of origin and then there this teeny tiny part that tells you the history behind the word and how it came into being the most used word in that region.
And what’s best is the illustrations. They are adorable and meaningful. Each illustration is a clear indication of the meaning of the word and its day to use.
A wonderful book that is for both- the young and the old.
I have been reading this book again and again ever since I received it from Penguin India. A huge thanks to the publisher and the author for sending me a copy.
