Book Description

This vibrant, engaging assortment offers children an entertaining introduction to the French language. From stories of friendship, family, discovery, and self-esteem to silly, snappy songs of one-of-a-kind barnyard animals, lullabies, and segments of classical music, children tune in to a variety of musical styles and multicultural experiences. The accompanying CDs provide children an opportunity to hear the pronunciation of the words and sing along as they learn the language. In this touching, poetic story set by the seaside, Old Man Tom teaches Sophie and Emilio the importance of seeing the world through their hearts. In addition to a production of the narrated story, the CD offers nine songs ranging from “Un ami que j’aime” (A Friend That I Like) and “C’est dans la nature des choses” (It’s in the Nature of Things) to “J’en ai plein le nid” (I Have a Nest Full) and “La maison du Bonhomme” (The Old Man’s House).
