A bilingual storybook? The better to learn French with!
Now story time is an opportunity to teach French to children aged 2 to 7--and you don't even have to know the language yourself! It's simple with McGraw-Hill's Easy French Storybook: Little Red Riding Hood.
This book presents the classic fairy tale side-by-side in French and English. The story of the little girl and the big bad wolf is vibrantly illustrated, allowing children to connect the meanings of words to pictures, reinforcing their comprehension of French vocabulary.
Don't worry about pronunciation--the accompanying CD does that for you! It presents an engaging reading of Little Red Riding Hood in both English and French that will entertain kids while they hear correct French pronunciation. You can read along with the narration or learn along with your kids!
The audio program also includes:
- A mini picture dictionary with key vocabulary words that can be used as an introduction to the French text or as a review after "The End"
- Everyday phrases integrated into the story
- Helpful pronunciation basics
Teaching children French has never been so enjoyable for kids--or so easy for you!
