    If I lived in France I would speak French.  My home would be in


    If I lived in France I would speak French.  My home would be in Western Europe.  Maybe I would live close to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.  Pari is also known as "The City of Light".  My name might be Jacqueline and instead of calling my parents Mommy or Daddy I would call them Maman and Papa.  If we visited the Eiffel tower we would get to take an elevator to the top.  

    Can you guess the most popular sport in France?  What would you like to know about children's culture in France?

    I enjoyed pretending to be French.  Living near the Eiffel Tower would be so amazing.  The author had some wonderful facts about France and the culture of the people who live there.  The writing and illustrations were informative to a child's standpoint with bold primary colors that will stimulate there minds and imagination wanting to learn more about France.  

    I am looking forward to book three in this series.

    I highly recommend this book. This would be a good series to have in a school, classroom. library or a child's home library.

    Disclosure:  I received a free copy of this book from the author/Bostick Communications for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  This review is my honest opinion.

    Parlez-vous français?  
    Author Carole Roman takes readers on a trip to France, and the City of Light--we even learn why Paris has that title.  Ms. Roman has devoted herself to writing books for children, and teaching them about the way the boys and girls of the world live, eat and play.
    In this book, the reader learns that French children called their mommy Maman, and their daddy Papa.  Common French names for boys are Hugo, Mathis and Theo.  While many girls in France are named Collette, Jacqueline and Clara. 
    Ms. Roman does a good job showing the common ground that children around the globe share, as well as, showing some differences.  For instance, French children like the game of soccer, but call it by another name, Le Football.
    Sprinkled throughout the book are several French words.  In the very back of the volume, there is a page that contains a list of those words, along with their pronunciation.    
    This soft, slightly oversized, paper-bound-book, is aimed toward three to eight-year-old children, and is written on that level.  The younger age range would need the book read to them, while the older age range might mange reading it on their own.  Bright colors are featured on all of the twenty-two pages, and more than half of those contain brilliant illustrations.
    Reading this is a fun way for this age group to learn a little bit of what it is like to be a child in France.  Whether a child is reading this book or someone is reading to them, this enjoyable 5-star book is a great way to learn about French culture!
    I’d like to thank the author for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required, or influenced, to give anything but an honest appraisal.

    We received this book to give an honest review.
    This is the second book we have read in this series, and I really enjoy it. You get to learn about France in a way that makes it fun to learn and not boring. I enjoyed how at the end of the book it shows you some of the words and how to pronounce them. 
    K enjoyed learning about the Eiffel tower that was in the book and informed me it looks like an A. 
    This story is written in a way that it captures the children into learning about a new place and their culture. 
    The only problem I had and it isn't anything major is when you open the book you get a picture of France and it shows you were Paris is. It was hard to read the word Paris in black letters on the blue background.
