All over the world, people express their love for their children through endearments, such as "sweetie pie" or "peanut."&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp A child might be called little angel, angelito, in Spanish or precious, bao bei, in Chinese or my sweet little moon, mera chanda, in Hindi.&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Little Treasures offers a wealth of endearments in fourteen languages to share with your own beloved poppet and petit chou.
This book began when Jacqueline K. Ogburn heard a friend call his children by German endearments. She lives in Durham, North Carolina, with her husband and their two chicklets. Chris Raschka's Yo! Yes? was a Caldecott Honor book in 1993, and his Hello, Goodbye Window won the Caldecott Medal in 2005.

Editorial Reviews

An effective and satisfying way of introducing the universal facets and feelings of childhood." - School Library Journal "This will have obvious appeal for populations with large ESL groups, but it would also make an excellent gift book for your own honey/pumpkin/sunshine/babycakes." - Bulletin "Move over, "sunshine." Ogburn and Raschka give families a whole new vocabulary with which to express their love. ? The message about familial love being a universal human trait is clearly and joyfully articulated; it's hard to imagine a sweeter concept." - Publishers Weekly, starred review"A colorful catalogue of endearments for children spans the globe and expands awareness by showing how love is universal." - Kirkus "Marvelous illustrations by the Caldecott winner Raschka and an inclusive look at expressions of love from Poland to Uganda. Little 'Light of My Hearts' (Arabic) and 'Little Fatties' (Chile) will relish the experience." - New York Times "
