French Lessons in Paris - French books for children
Are you a parent?
Of small humans? ( sorry, I'm not sure if it works for animals, but you can try it with your kitten. I'd love to get your feedback)
Anyway, as we say in French, revenons à nos moutons. Like many parents who want to learn a new language, you may be lacking the time to practice and be with your kids. I have THE solution. Especially for those of you with bilingual French-English genius: the French Reading Time.
It is a wonderful way to be with your children, help them relax, practice your French pronunciation and learn new vocabulary. We all love to multi-task!
In the list below you will find French books for different age group. If you enjoy this kind of post and want more, let us know by liking and sharing the age group
of your kiddos. New posts may be coming soon ;)
The first book I wanted to present is certainly the most famous: Le petit prince. Even if its prestige is very high, I think it's a great book to have in our library for children. Indeed, the story is full of hope and the illustrations are full of magic.
-> Le petit prince de Saint Exupéry
The second is not originally a French book. In fact, it was written by a Spanish writer, but the learning it seeks to share is universal. Thanks to this book, your kids will learn to deal with their emotions, to identify them, to manage them but also to express them and you, in the meantime, you will be able to name different kinds of emotions and to go into details of your feelings. For me, this book is a must have and should be in every kids' library.
-> La couleur des émotions d'Anna Llenas
This book is a bit different from the others because it's une bande dessinée. I love this book for the way it shows us the different side of a 10 year old girl. The character of Esther is very charming and the drawings are really pretty.
-> Les Cahiers d'Esther - Tome 1- Histoires de mes 10 ans de Riadd Sattouf
The fourth book is more for children around six, five, six, seven to eight years old. I picked this british book because the story is very nice and it can reflect how children feel when their parents don't have enough time for them. And "la cerise sur le gâteau", the drawings are lovely.
"Comme toutes les bonnes choses ont une fin, this is the end of this post. Don't hesitate to share your children's favourites with us. I hope you and your kids enjoyed this post.
