Lingo Dingo and the Polish Astronaut is a heartwarming and funny bilingual children’s book with a difference that will help children to learn Polish.
In this story, Lingo travels to space to help an astronaut. There’s just one problem. The Astronaut only speaks Polish…. What could go wrong!?!
The majority of the text is in English with over 50 Polish words and phrases slipped in as the story progresses. Having a main character who only speaks in the new language helps to build empathy and a positive attitude towards people who speak different languages.
Lingo Dingo and the Polish Astronaut is an ideal story to share with young children being introduced to Polish for the first time. The Polish words and phrases from the story are translated into English at the bottom of each page where they feature for the first time. It would be useful if the parent, teacher or caregiver reading this story had some knowledge of Polish to be able to pronounce the Polish words correctly.
