At a busy street market, kids eating ice cream exclaim, "Yum " in English, "Geshmak " in Yiddish, and "Nam-nam " in Danish. But disaster strikes when a little dog overturns a spice cart, showering pepper on everyone's ice cream. Will the kids end up crying, "Hai hai," or cheering, "Yupi "? Energetic art and a lift-the-flap feature make exploring languages fun.
