Format: Paperback
This slim book is packed with information about France- its history, language, and what it's like to live there. It's a great way to satisfy, or stimulate, a child's curiousity about faraway places. The illustrations are colorful, and yet not too cluttered to be informative. The descriptions are clearly written, with nice big print, but with enough detail to have educational value. I recommend it for grade-schoolers, who have any interest, or who need to learn about, life in France.
One deficiency: Since I don't speak French, I can't help my daughter with pronunciation, which is so important. Although some of the pages include transliterations of the French phrases, not all of them do. It would be helpful if they did.

Even if it is only a kids book there is a lot of vocabulary and some phonetics to set a good start to learn French and what France can be like.

My daughter used this book for her project on France. It was very useful. It contained colorful pictures and short easy to
paragraphs. I think it was more useful to have it in printed form than on my Kindle. You can flip through the book and use the index. It had many French words that you could learn if you wanted.

My daughter was doing a project on France, she is 8. The book is a little dated, but still effective. She was able to do the project entirely on her own using this book.

My granddaughter (third grade) was doing a report on France, so I ordered this book. I read it and loved it. She read it and said it had a lot of info for her report. So we both learned a lot from this simple and easy to read book.
