Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* This delightful tour of Paris begins, “When in Paris, everybody bonjours.” The refrain is repeated as a little girl and her family hear that welcome, “From shores. In stores. On guided tours.” The cheery ink-and-watercolor artwork is stylishly rendered. McMenemy sometimes places her characters in spaces of white that highlight them against quintessentially French backgrounds. (An architectural key on the endpapers identifies sites from the Eiffel Tower to the Paris Zoo.) Throughout, the brief rhymes are tightly rendered but cleverly worded, and they work perfectly in tandem with the art, giving youngsters a solid idea of what treats await them in Paris, should they be lucky enough to visit. A clever ending shows what happens when the little girl and her teddy bear fly back to the States. Those who have been paying close attention will be delighted by the presence on the plane of the small mouse, who has followed the family in and around Paris, and has now managed to find its way to the U.S. Très bien! Preschool-Grade 2. --Ilene Cooper

Review

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, March 24, 2008:
"Kids may well demand to be taken to the nearest passport office after finishing this light-as-a-soufflé salute to the City of Lights."

Starred Review, Booklist, August 1, 2008:
“The brief rhymes are tightly rendered but cleverly worded, and they work perfectly in tandem with the art.”

my little girl was asking for this book nonstop after we had to return it to the library, so i had to order it. she loves to look at the pictures and will recite the words on every other page after i read one of the pages. she has also started finding the "small pictures" on one page where it talks about the Paris attractions and then searches the book until she finds the "big picture" that it corresponds to. she loves the book. and it's fun to read to her.

This story is a fantastic little romp through Paris. Keep in mind that this book is not focused on teaching a second language (the only used French vocabulary is "Bonjour"). Yet it does expose children to the sights, sounds, and excitement of Paris. The artwork and story line are entertaining and educational. I love the epilogue at the end that highlights some of the locations and attractions Paris has to offer. All in all, a great book!

Leslie Kimmelman's EVERYBODY BONJOURS! offers up a set of basic French words and fun, uplifting stories to go with them as an easy introduction to French culture and language. From a guided tour to a Parisian crowd, bonjour is the word of the moment in this very simple and fun picturebook exploration.

This is the BEST book! Our 19 month old daughter loves it and has since she was about 12 months old. Bought as a memento of our trip to Paris with her. She loves looking at the drawings and pointing to the people and sights. It is one of the longer picture books we own that she will let you read all of it without losing her attention.

Fun read for your little one! It is a very simple, rhyming book that takes you throughout Paris. I really enjoy the illustrations. It really includes all the highlights of Paris, from Parisian cafes to crepe stands to the Eiffel Tower and everything in between. Great book for anybody, but especially if you are about to take your kids to Paris or you just came back and want to reminisce!

This book is so cute! Nice pictures, cute story idea, and presents a really nice overview of an American child's trip to France. My teaching assistant is French and she liked all the French cultural references. Said it made her a little nostalgic for home.

Great book with great illustrations of all the wonderful sites in Paris. My 3 year old is half French living in the Bahamas and this book is giving her a wonderful look at the country where her mother is from.

A must if your child likes Paris, France, or if you want to introduce your young one to the monuments and pretty vistas in Paris. Great to prepare a kid going on scenic trip to Paris, or a kid who is about to enter French language class.
