This week we’ve been reading a bunch of French livres. I have collected several over the years including a couple that I purchased in France long before I had les enfants. I have several English/French books that help teach different words and phrases to kids, but really aimer actual story books in French. A few of my favorites are:
Tu Nages ou Tu Coule about cows learning to swim,
Maman, qu’est-ce-que le Royaume de Dieu?–Mom, what is the kingdom of God?, illustrated with children’s artwork
Nous Allons a la Plage-We’re Going to the Beach
Ma Soeur Bibi-a family brings home a dog from the pound and their current chien, who thinks he’s getting a new brother, is anything but excited about his new sister.
Many are just translated versions of stories in English, but I often prefer reading in French. And of course, there’s also my favorite This is Paris by M. Sasek, the first children’s travel guide he wrote. C’est fantastique!
