“I have been a primary language specialist for many years and as such I only use teaching materials of the highest quality. I am extremely impressed by the new book, La Famille Jolineau en Vacances. The beautiful, colourful illustrations, the progressive complexity of the text and the humour throughout the story make for a very enjoyable experience. Children are prompted to answer questions on what they have read and the games at the back of the book are helpful tools to memorise new vocabulary.
Another useful feature of the book is the guide to silent consonants, all marked in red. This will encourage young French readers to develop correct pronunciation. I understand that an audio version of the book will be available in the future and I consider this to be a very valuable tool to complement the text. I would highly recommend this book both for the classroom and home reading.”
