Book Review and Activity of I Know How to Bonjour

                                         I Know How to Bonjour Review 



Je sais comment Bonjour est une bonne source pour professeurs de Français-anglais ou débutant, apprentissage des étudiants.  Un petite fille apprend une leçon de longue durée : « nous sommes plus semblables que différents. »



I Know How to Bonjour is a good source for French-English teachers or beginner learning students. The English section is written in rhyming verses. The French part, including the illustrations, are in green hues pastel colors, giving the story an interesting contrast with the English version. The book contains a variety of vocabulary activity pages and glossary for easy understanding.

I Know How to Bonjour is the story of a child's first day in a French Kindergarten classroom. She discovers words by assimilation with excitement and joy. She plays, sings, and laughs while she has questions and wonders if she is understanding her teacher.

When she comes back home, while talking with her mother, one thing is clear for this little girl, she learns a long lasting lesson: “we are alike more than different.”  



I recommend this book for children ages 4-6 years old and the Bilingual Children’s Series: I Know how to Books. For more details visit: www.aspleywrites.com

I’m reviewing this book as part of the Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2017 (1/27/17) is its fourth year and was founded by Valarie Budayr from Jump Into A Book and Mia Wenjen from PragmaticMom. Our mission is to raise awareness on the ongoing need to include kid’s books that celebrate diversity in home and school bookshelves while also working diligently to get more of these types of books into the hands of young readers, parents and educators. 
Despite census data that shows 37% of the US population consists of people of color, only 10% of children’s books published have diversity content. Using the Multicultural Children’s Book Day holiday, the MCBD Team are on a mission to change all of that.
