French-English Word Puzzle Book by Catherine Bruzzone, Rachel Croxon, Louise Millar

Younger boys and girls have fun learning basic vocabulary in a second language when they open this book. It presents puzzles that use 14 child-friendly themes as it teaches French vocabulary to English-speaking children and English vocabulary to French-speaking kids. The themes include On the Farm, The Supermarket, Numbers and Months, At the Seashore, In the Classroom, Colors of the Rainbow, In the Country, and seven more. Each theme is presented twice on facing pages. The right-hand page gives English-speaking kids the puzzle to solve in French; and the left-hand page instructs French-speaking kids to solve the puzzle in English. Boys and girls learn words in the new language by working out crossword puzzles, completing word searches, joining the dots, filling in blank spaces, and playing several other word games. They get help in the form of picture clues, and they'll find answers to all puzzles plus complete bilingual word lists at the back of each book. All puzzle pages feature cheerful color illustrations.


What a super way to reinforce early learning of a language!.. This is an attractive book which children will enjoy.
