I really loved this book and I enjoyed reading it in French. If you are starting to learn another language whether it is French, Spanish, German, etc. You should read children's books on a daily basis to begin with just to help yourself get familar with the language and the sentence structure. It has really helped me!

I am not a native speaker, but wanted to start exposing my daughter to the French language early on. This has been a great book for that! It rhymmes and has bold contrast in the pictures and is just the right length. I really enjoy it and she seems to as well.

Madeleine is a wonderful children's book to have in French! The story of course takes place in Paris, and it's a good, simple story to read to children who are learning French at school.

I bought this book to read to children in an African orphanage. The translation is nicely done, but the book is so SMALL that even if I were reading it to only one child, it would be hard to see the pictures. I know you gave the dimensions, however one is so used to the English version, and the cover looks exactly the same. For twelve dollars, couldn't they have spared more paper?

Madeleine, the smallest and the mightiest. This tiny book inaugurates the well-known series published from 1939 to 1961 by Austrian author Ludwig Bemelmans. Originally published in English, this French translation serves as the perfect linguistic backdrop since the story takes place in an orphanage in Paris. The "plus petite" girl Madeleine has no fear of tigers (caged ones, at least), mice or gravity. She loves the icy winter and presents a perfect example to the rest of her troop, led by the stalwart and habit-bearing Miss Clavel. But one night this little fearless red-headed girl sits up in bed groaning in pain. The doctor arrives and rushes her to the hospital. Strangely, this makes the rest of the girls miserably jealous. The story ends with one of the greatest twists of all juvenile literature. Simple but highly effective artwork accompanies the simple story. Some pages feature nearly impressionistic colors and wildly stylized backgrounds, such as the zoo scene with the roaring tiger. Others contain stark black on yellow line drawings with very minimalistic coloring. These variations provide the perfect visual fireworks to the narrative drama.

The French translation manages impressively to preserve the original rhyming scheme in many places. This does result in some jostling of standard word order, so absolute beginners to French may find themselves a little perplexed here and there. As for the language level, it remains at the late beginner to early intermediate throughout. Those undaunted by sentences such as "se renfrognaient s'il le fallait" will encounter few challenges. The imperfect tense seems to dominate the story.

I've loved this book since I was little, and I have the english version I read to my daughter at night. I'm teaching my 2 year old french, so this is perfect.
