La Famille Jolineau is a treat. The very interactive pictures are amusing, absorbing readers of all ages in the story and so turning the pages & then returning for another read – very clever! We found the text clear & informative without being daunting. Meanwhile Isabelle la coccinelle & the red silent letters both add another layer to the experience. My three children enjoyed meeting the different characters & activities of Elisabeth, Gerard, Celine, Julien, Mathieu & Mambo. Introducing ‘ Le gouter’ provides a charming insight into French culture which in turn makes the book & story much more real & tangible. ‘Le gouter’ has been adopted already as a brilliant idea by my three!
Thank you Elisabeth. Can you write a sequel story for La Famille Jolineau please.
