“This book is meant to be used by parents with their kids, whether or not they know French,” Judy shared. “It’s a great chance to give kids an early start learning a language, and for parents to learn or review some French and enjoy the experience with their children.”
The audio version is free and downloadable at the website.
Bonjour!… is different from other books that teach a language. It begins with a story. Children board Pete the Pilot’s magic airplane en route to France. There, they learn some basic French. When they arrive, they meet Louis l’escargot, France’s popular snail, follow his adventure, meet his friends, absorb the culture, and learn French.
Bonjour! …is the sister book of the award-winning ¡HOLA! Let’s Learn Spanish, published in 2015. This book is also available for reviews.
French connects with Jesica’s love for learning new languages, and it is one of her lifetime goals to learn French— the native language of her husband who is from Cameroon. By including a French translation in her book, it not only helps her learn and practice French, but it aids others who are learning and practicing French especially children! She is grateful to her husband, Abel, who enthusiastically and patiently helped to translate the book into French.
It is Jesica’s hope that children and parents will be inspired by the colorful and vibrant drawings of nature depicting different settings around the world, and hopefully, some French can be learned along the way. In this book, enjoy learning French and enjoy a walk in nature— une promenade en nature!
