In “Bosley’s New Friends”, Bosley wanders through the forest wondering why he can’t communicate with the other animals.  He gets strange looks from the animals and can’t seem to include himself in their games.  After learning how to understand what they are saying, his eyes are opened to how many new friends he can make by learning other languages.

Of course, the book is intended to teach your child new words and phrases while enjoying this inspiring story in a similar manner as previous Bosley books.  There will be labelled illustrations, repeat words, line-by-line translations and other interesting opportunities to incorporate language learning lessons into story time.

Illustrations are underway as we speak and they are coming out just as wonderfully as ever at the hand of the talented Ozzy Esha.
