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.

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.

I bought this for my five-year-old granddaughter who is taking French as a world language in school. I haven't read the entire little book, but just glancing through it I found two spelling errors in French words. "Parfum" (perfume) was written as "parfume," and "chocolat" was written as "chocalat." As an informative book on France for children this kind of sloppiness is egregious! How hard would it have been to check the spelling of French words?

Aside from that the pictures and text are appealing, but surely an editor should have caught these errors.

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.

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.

Perfect. Exactly what I needed for our Mommy & Me "All Things Paris" weekend! Great overview of the country and information presented in an interesting way for my 10 year old. Especially love the mini French lesson at the end with the pronunciations included. So glad I found this book!
