Multi-Lingual Books: Message for World Book Day

Irina Bokova Director General UNESCO

“Translation is one of the driving principles of our creative diversity, which enriches each language through contact with all the others…Our world needs to understand the diversity of cultures and to develop much stronger intercultural skills in the minds of every man and woman. We need these skills in order to live together in heterogeneous societies. We need them in order to address our common challenges together.”

Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO 

 People Called Women Bookstore is a multi-cultural feminist bookstore.  GreenWomanStore is privileged to have them as our bookseller. We can always trust PCW to make the most timely and informative, woman authored, books available to us. 

One of my favorite Spanish/English children’s books is Words Are Not for Hurting/Las Palabras no son para lastimar by Elizabeth Verdick. Words are Not For Hurting by Elizabeth Verdick

“Words are Not for Hurting,” is a bilingual Spanish/English book where children learn that their words belong to them.  It is an early childhood board book teaching children how to choose words that are helpful, not hurtful.  It introduces positive ways to respond when others say mean or unkind words. This book includes activities and discussion starters for parents, caregivers, and educators. Enjoy!
