Little Treasures: Endearments from Around the World

by Jacqueline K. Ogburn
Illustrated by Chris Raschka

Published by Houghton Mifflin, 2011
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢠧47-428628

Ages 3-6

All around the world, parents use terms of endearments for their children to show how much they love them. In Ethiopia, for example, Amharic-speaking parents call their children yeinay filiklik (搈y bubble of joy) and in Australia, they are called lambchop. Three or four terms of endearment are given for fourteen different nations and languages. For the languages other than English, the terms are given in their native language, accompanied by a pronunciation guide, and written in their native script, if it differs from the Western alphabet. Chris Raschka抯 paintings show the loving parents looking adoringly at their wide-eyed flower buds, dumplings, and mischievous peas, reinforcing the message that parental love is universal and children everywhere are loved and cherished.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
