Dylan and Isabella, the polyglot siblings, have special guests in town: the grandparents. To celebrate their arrival from abroad, the family decides to have a picnic at the park. Things get a bit out of control when the children meet a group of unwelcoming boys at the park and when Kiki, Dylan’s pet chicken, decides to venture out on her own.

In this fun and multicultural story, children will learn about the true value of friendship, of not judging a book by its cover, and of being proud of their own culture while also respecting that of others.

While reading this book, kids will learn six new words in different languages and feel like little polyglots themselves!

Ok, a little bit of trouble is healthy, especially if the kids are practicing another language while making that trouble! 🙂

1 review for A Multicultural Picnic

  1. Reviwer

    Dylan’s Birthday Present is a children’s book like no other. It conveys a powerful message of solidarity and inclusion at a time when the world seems to be marked by a rising indifference and fear towards anything or anyone that may be different. This book is a must-read for children (and even adults!) of every age, since it aims at conveying a powerful message of love and against intolerance and racial prejudice.
