The Norwegian language contains words from all over the world! Some have travelled only a short distance, crossing the border from Sweden or heading north from Germany. Others have been on much longer journeys, all the way from South America, Africa or Asia.
This is a book about the words that have settled in Norway, becoming part of our language. Children will find words they know laid out on beautifully illustrated maps, they’ll go on journeys by land and sea, and they’ll learn that our language makes the world both smaller and richer.
A gorgeous, colourful book that you’ll want to keep on display in the children’s room.
