Product Description

French and English. We are all off to France for Christmas with the grandparents. Marigold Plunket has produced a second set of stunning watercolour illustrations for our next book in the 'Seasons' series: L'Hiver or Winter. Follow the 2 original children and Leo, the puppy, as they pack their bags and set off via the Channel Tunnel for France and Christmas. They eat a French breakfast, shop for ingredients to make a French Christmas cake and stay up late on Christmas Eve to wait for Father Christmas....but does he know they are in France? Will he bring presents? and can you see the mouse hidden in each picture? Find out in this charming bilingual book by one of our superb artists. As with all Les Puces books you open it one way and it's French - FLIP IT OVER and open it the other way and it's English. We don't put the two languages on the same page, so you feel like you are reading a real French book .... and you can't cheat!

About the Seller

Les Puces bilingual books

Hello my name is Mandie Davis and I am the founder of Les Puces Ltd early years classes and bilingual books. I have two girls, Willow is bilingual and India is trilingual.  Neither of them have had any formal lessons in another language in order to learn it.  They learned their French and German by living in those countries and being immersed in the language and culture; in exactly the same way as you learned your mother toungue before you went to school!


Languages have always been important to me and even before India was born I had bought her children's books from wherever we had been on holiday!  Communication is one of the greatest of human gifts and the early realisation that not everyone in the world speaks the same language, broadens the mind and instils an acceptance of other nations and cultures.  


Children accept language without questioning or feeling embarrassed and their ear is very astute at a young age.  Rather than waiting until they are older and forcing them to learn by rote, Les Puces Ltd is designed to introduce children to the French language.  They sing along with native French voices and appreciate the beauty of the language.  They  learn a little about the culture of our neighbouring country and this hopefully plants a seed of inquisitveness that will encourage them to learn, travel and explore as they grow.


I am a firm believer in learning through fun, especially using music, dance and listening to stories. 


When in France I taught English to French children, using the same methods.  I was always being told by their parents that they were doing exceptionally well once they started secondary school.
