We write our names on the front side, countries, and places we’ve visited on the backside. On the inside pages, we can use stamps and stickers or draw representative items from the places we’ve visited. We can add as many internal pages (blank A4) as we like.

Draw your language portrait! Using the attached human outline, children choose a number of coloring pencils that equals the number of languages they speak. Then, they are free to decorate their human outline in any way they wish, to symbolize the many languages they speak. Here’s an example from a school visit in Malta.

I found this PDF online (unfortunately I don’t know who’s the author and what’s the source of the file) featuring three lovely activities (written in English) which are perfectly tied to the theme of this book.
