    Very enjoyable ebook. What I like the most that stories are very engaging and not standardised, both my son and me enjoy them. Having audio helps with pronunciation which is not the easiest in French language. Really happy with the purchase.

    Kristin Laus

    I got this for my daughter so we could learn French together before bedtime. I had taken French in high school, so I had some vague familiarity with some of the vocabulary. It was a fun way to brush up on my French and to familiarize my young daughter with French. It was really helpful to have the English translation as well.

    Marija

    My kids and I are in love with this book and it became our ritual to read it before the bedtime! It is very easy to follow up because of the English translation. I am so happy that I found this fun way to introduce them to French which is my second language. Merci Mosieur Frederic

    VICTOR J. VALER GARCIA

    Very Complete book to learn French and English.

    I found it a simple and really practical book for those who are starting studying the French language like me.
    It counts on a very good structure. In addition, it is really useful since you can read it in both languages due to the English translation on the same page. It helps to understand the story. Finally, as it is an audiobook, the oral narration may help to improve the hearing while Reading

    I choose to read French for Kids Volume 1, because as a novice French learner, I thought it would be a good start. I, also, believed that a good way to introduce my children to the French language, (we live in an area that has a lot of French Canadian tourism). I feel I benefited from the book, and that my children will also benefit from it. I, liked how it started in French and then underneath it, it was wrote in English. I, liked having the audio version with it.

    The book is perfect to get in to a new language.
    The book tells 10 cute stories to parents tell to kids, the vocabulary is huge such a great words to learn and the audio improve your pronunciation and listening in both, english and french, but you have to read usually to fix in the mind. The narrators have a pretty voice to listen and to locate in the story. Now about the design of the book, is pretty, nice illustrations, and the bold type to french and normal type to english, is great but sometimes confuse me, for exemple the title type could be different and more attractive, the same for the book cover.

    Lisha Zhang

    This book is a great way to learn French. The language is not too complicated yet there is a varied vocabulary. The stories are imaginative and suitable for young readers. Admittedly the stories are not as suitable for adults like me but they helped me to learn French nonetheless.

    Crystal

    I took 2 years of French in high school and a semester in college, but that was a long time ago. I’m surprised at how much I retained over the years, and as I read and listened to these stories, I definitely picked up some new stuff. I love the way the book gives you a French language paragraph and then the translation. It also does this for lines of dialogue, which I find helpful. It’s fun for me to compare one line of French to English, so having it put together this way was helpful.
    I enjoyed the pace of the reader. I know that when people speak French to me, it’s difficult to follow along because I they always seem to talk so fast! This helps improve listening comprehension so you can eventually take it up a notch in terms of speed. The audio is clear and easy to understand, and the French is bolded on the page so you can skip the English sections if you want.
    The pictures are also a great addition, and I think my kids would even enjoy learning through this method. They say to read children’s books if you’re learning a new language, which makes sense, so I like this book for that. It’s not too remedial, but it is the next logical step towards fluency. I definitely recommend.
