Synopsis

La Famille Jolineau En Vacances (The Jolineau Family on Holiday) by Elisabeth Ruiz

La Famille Jolineau en Vacances is a bilingual, fun storybook for children starting to learn French in primary school. Children can steadily develop their curiosity and confidence with the French language, which will improve their chance of retaining it. On each page, a ladybird will ask them easy questions based on the text as the family go about their day-to-day activities. The book has been written in light of government guidance about teaching modern languages at primary school level. This helpful kid's book will offer children an opportunity to explore all aspects of learning French in a fun way; reading, developing an authentic accent and also learning about French culture. The writing games will encourage them to memorise and write French words. The colourful, eye-catching illustrations will catch the children's attention and encourage them to comment - hopefully in French! The book's relaxed approach will put youngsters at ease with learning a new language and make the experience easy, enjoyable - and simply quite natural. La Famille Jolineau en Vacances is aimed at primary school children aged 6 and over and will also be suitable for their parents, relatives or teachers to read to them. Author and native speaker Elisabeth Ruiz is highly skilled in teaching French, which she has been doing for nearly 10 years. The book has been beautifully illustrated by Luigi Mastroserio, who illustrated Le suicide du Phenix et autres evenements improbables and is exhibiting his paintings regularly.
