Translation Help

We recently opened a box of Cheerios® that had a children’s book in it. We’ve gotten these before, although it has been awhile. The kids look forward to this and we’ve found quite a few that have become favorites. The books in the cereal box don’t keep up well with the frequent handling and we’ve had to replace many of them with sturdier purchased ‘board book’ or soft cover.

Anyway, my oldest asked me why this one came in both English and Spanish. I explained that it was so people who speak Spanish can also read the book. She pondered this for a minute or so and came back to ask, “But what if you only speak Latin or French or Algebra?”
