Boys and girls in early grades receive a fun-filled, informal introduction to French in this picture book, supplemented with an interactive CD–ROM. Kids go along with Harry and his friends as he visits France. Vivid full-page illustrations show scenes of Harry arriving at the airport, being driven to the home where he will stay as a guest, enjoying lunch in the kitchen, then playing at a beach, visiting a farm, exploring a town and its shops, going to a party, and finally returning to the airport for his flight home. All illustrations are filled with objects that kids will immediately recognize, each object labeled to identify it in French. For instance, an illustration of a village center shows a car (labeled la voiture) moving down the street . . . a boy preparing to ride his bicycle (le vélo) . . . a butcher shop with its sign above the window (la boucherie), and several other appropriately labeled objects. Each two-page spread also features a lift-the-flap phrasebook, in which the words are spelled out phonetically. The accompanying CD–ROM is filled with spoken examples of French to familiarize children with its sound, plus fun-to-play language-learning games. (Ages 7–10)
