Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This vibrant, engaging assortment offers children an entertaining introduction to the French language. From stories of friendship, family, discovery, and self-esteem to silly, snappy songs of one-of-a-kind barnyard animals, lullabies, and segments of classical music, children tune in to a variety of musical styles and multicultural experiences. The accompanying CDs provide children an opportunity to hear the pronunciation of the words and sing along as they learn the language.


Delightful illustrations and catchy songs combine to give young minds a reminder on the significance of taking care of the environment


This musical journey tells the story of the Jequitiba, a giant and ancient tree in the heart of Brazil whose life has become seriously threatened. With a little help from a singing superstar rooster and his friends—three chickens, a horse and a little boy—we discover that miracles really do happen. With exquisite illustrations and 17 original songs written by Hélio Ziskind and sung by Bïa, Monica Freire, and Georges Moustaki, amongst others, this book provides children with an important message about conservation.
