Today our guest is Kristie Frieze from Wycliffe Bible Translators who is joining us to discuss a great new children's book called Around the World with Kate and Mack: A Look at Languages from A to Z. We're going to learn a lot about different nations and how they are getting the scriptures translated into their languages.
Around the World with Kate and Mack: A Look at Languages from A to Z offers children a fun way to begin understanding Bible translation and the need for it around the world. In addition, Wycliffe's website has new games for children, like Find your Name and Message Decoding that tie in to the book.
“Around the World” is an updated version of the Wycliffe classic children’s book, “From Akebu to Zapotec: A Book of Bibleless Peoples,” which has sold more than 30,000 copies. In “Around the World,” Kate, a fictionalized missionary kid, and Mack, her precocious parrot, take readers on a globe-trotting adventure, introducing children to a new language and culture for each letter of the alphabet, from Arop (Papua New Guinea) to Zinza (Tanzania). With more than 100 pages of photographs, colorful illustrations and fun facts, “Around the World” is a perfect introduction to Bible translation for children of all ages.
