Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Raker Collins
It is difficult to place this book. Although it claims to be a "very first" French dictionary, it aims at both a language-savvy child and a very young reader. Doll-like models of children appear throughout the book to invite the child into the dictionary format, yet the approximately 575 words included run the gamut from simple nouns to not-so-simple parts of speech. Some vocabulary words are merely illustrated, but many are used in sentences. The format includes first, an English word from a letter of the alphabet; then, the French translation is given; then, an illustration is provided with or without captions in English first and then in French. For example, "All" translates as "tout (m), toute (f), tous, toutes." There is an illustration of three children with musical instruments. The caption reads "They are all playing music./ Ils jouent tous de la musique." This entry assumes that the child has a concept of adjectival agreement in gender and number, as well as knowledge of how to conjugate the word "jouer." The use of "de la" with "musique" and the placement of tous after the verb are also advanced concepts. Following the A to Z entries are sections on prepositions, pronouns, query words, color, shapes, numbers, months, days, and seasons. A short section explaining some basic grammar, followed by a French word list, complete the book. Native speakers of French pronounce the words online. A student learning French will want to have a good background, or tutor, in grammar before utilizing this dictionary to the fullest. Reviewer: Carol Raker Collins, Ph.D.
