French on the Move for Kids by Catherine Bruzzone

French On the Move for Kids is a fun and natural way to introduce children to the French language. Now in CD format, this package is perfect for car trips, around the house, or anytime kids want to hear some French fun. The 45-minute CD features twenty-two catchy songs that entertain kids while exposing them to French language basics. The lyrics have been specifically developed for easy understanding - and the engaging melodies make singing along irresistible. The narrator highlights key words and phrases, reinforcing important vocabulary for young listeners; and each song is followed by a simple game or activity that gives kids the opportunity to show off what they have learned. The twenty-two songs reinforce a wide variety of basic vocabulary such as counting, family, holidays, school, animals, weather, and colors. The accompanying booklet features all the lyrics in both English and French.

About the Author

CATH BRUZZONE:
Hi, I’m Cath and I’m a publisher and the owner of b small publishing, which I started in 1990. After teaching French and Italian at secondary schools, I spent 10 years at Pan Books, developing language learning and children’s activity books, including the Breakthrough series of home study language courses (now published by Macmillan) and the Learn Together series of home study workbooks for parents and children. Though I spend a lot of my time helping other people to learn languages, I love to learn new languages myself. My two children, Lucy and Annie, are bilingual in English and Italian and I’ve dabbled with Turkish and Arabic, passed a GCSE in Spanish, got to grips with Mandarin Chinese to visit Lucy when she was teaching in China in 2001 and I’m currently learning Welsh. It’s all great fun but sometimes it’s hard to find the time to practice! Luckily, in 2002, Annie spent some time teaching in Chile, which made me brush up my Spanish again. At b small, I’m responsible for all of the books that we produce but I don’t write them all myself! Given my interest in languages, most of the books I have worked on are to help young people learn more languages. These include, the Lucy Cat Series, the Bilingual First Books, First Language with Supercat, Hide & Speak and More Hide & Speak, Language Fun and the Colour in Language books.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
