In My First Book of Indonesian Words, the familiar ABC rhyming structure combines with colourful illustrations to encourage the natural ability of children to easily pick up new concepts and vocabulary

Words for things kids know in English (like kucing, for ‘cat’) are joined with words specific to Indonesian culture (gamelan, batik, legong), giving children insights into Indonesian culture and life. Everyday expressions – such as Apa kabar? which means ‘How are you?’ – give them a chance to communicate in a foreign language and shows them that people in other cultures are just like them.
