If this book was available when my kids were growing up, it would have been great. But we lived in France for a year instead to have them learn the language. Now I have grandkids and this book is the next best thing to living in a foreign country to help your kids learn a foreign language. I strongly recommend it!

Just got this book and read it with my 7 year old and 5 year old boys. They loved it. It is fun and intuitive making learning and keep their attention easy. Look forward to digging into it more until they're both repeating French words and phrases all the time!

I'm a University student studying Childhood, Culture and Education, where I put a lot of research into different aspects of children's lives. I came across this book while researching a paper and was really impressed by the real world approach, as it acknowledges that parents aren't perfect and gives examples on how you can help your children in a simple and fun way.
After reading this book, I have recommended it to all of my University friends. Great book, Thanks!
