“A multilingual child has a bright future, teach children a new language,” says author Segilola Salami. My First Words In Yoruba by Segilola Salami is a simple yet colorful, easy to read children’s book that focuses on one of the Nigerian spoken language dialects, Yoruba. In a child’s early years, their cognitive skills are being developed. It is during this time that a child can be taught a variety of languages, which can become a valuable component to their growth. My First Words In Yoruba will help the child to translate Yoruba words into English. Even though the Yoruba words are not phonetically broken down, the young reader will be opened up to a whole new world of wonder to explore through language.
I liked how My First Words In Yoruba by Segilola Salami is written because it introduces Yoruba by using names such as family members, parts of the body, places, days of the week, and food. When I married my former husband, I began to learn about the differences between Ebo and Yoruba. I then began to learn some Yoruba common words that I could begin to use to expand my vocabulary. As an added bonus, the book contains the alphabet in Yoruba. If you want to increase your child’s ability to communicate in several languages, pick up a copy of My First Words In Yoruba by Segilola Salami.
