Many colleges require that incoming students have taken two years of a foreign language. Studies have shown that the younger children can be introduced to a foreign language, the better they can learn it. So if your young ones are interested in French, this is a book for you. Author Kim Chatel, whose Rainbow Fish was winner of the 2009 Epic Children's Fiction Award, uses an appealing story about a small horse, only six hands tall, to introduce common French words and phrases to early readers. Every page contains several French words with their English meanings placed along side those items in the pictures by illustrator Kathleen Bullock. In the back, there is a glossary which gives English and French animal sounds, the translation of some common French phrases used in the book, and the meanings of the names of the animals. Both my wife and I studied French in high school and used various books to introduce our boys to French when they were small. Clip-Clop, Tippity-Tap is a cute resource for this purpose.
