KIRKUS REVIEW

 A noted illustrator selects 26 words that happen to begin with the same letter in English, Spanish, French, and German and provides handsome, creatively bordered paintings and pronunciations for each. The governing principle insures that the many links among these European languages are emphasized, whether borrowings are recent (``yeti,'' the same in all four) or ancient (``nose,'' ``nariz,'' ``nez,'' ``Nase''). An appealing and intriguing introduction to the concept of language. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 4+)
