Language Lizard~Marek and Alice's Christmas~Book Review and Giveaway



Looking for an original holiday story to share with your children this year? Perhaps like me you are eager to share not only the excitement of your own family holiday traditions with your children but would like to expose them to the full mosaic of unique cultural festivals the world has to offer.

As Canadians my family is immersed in a society of cultural diversity--that of the traditional aboriginal cultures who have inhabited this land since time in memorial, that of the early French and English settlers, and of later immigrants from a myriad of countries-- creating a fascinating and exciting mecca of variance!

Language Lizard offers books which not only celebrate culturally diverse themes as does Marek and Alice's Christmas, but celebrates the diversity of language as well through bilingual literature. Marek and Alice's Christmas is part of the Celebrating Festivals Series and brings to life for young people the warmth and beauty of a Polish Christmas ans it's heart felt traditions. This delightful Christmas story is available in English with Albanian, Arabic, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, French, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Urdu, or Welsh. After reading the story you may even wish to try the Christmas cookie recipe featured in the back of the book!

Because French is one of the two official languages in Canada and because French Immersion is becoming a more and more popular educational choice for Canadian parents I was sent "Marek and Alice's Christmas"/ "Le Noel de Marek et d'Alice" to review in the English with French version. If you are a Canadian with a child enrolled in French Immersion or just a Northern Mama follower who loves exposing his/her children to other language experiences you might enjoy winning a French/English copy of "Marek and Alice's Christmas"!
Also remember Northern Mama readers receive a 10% discount on this title, "Marek and Alice's Christmas" and "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" in their choice of language until December 4, 2009!
