This coming Saturday, March 18, 2017, in the morning, Nancy Hundal and Danielle S. Marcotte are launching their new French books, so come down for a piece of cake onyour own or, better still, bring the French program children in your life!
Nancy Mundal’s Le Camion 21 is that rare object: a French kid’s book that takes place in Vancouver. There are few in existence! This brightly illustrated story would also make a wonderful gift to any out-of-town visitors and young friend on your list.
Daniel S. Marcotte’s Noé et Grand-Ours Une Aventure au Yukon, on the other hand, is great for airplane enthusiasts and dog lovers of the same age group, 4–8 years old. It gives the reader a sense of the Great Canadian North and its community spirit. For the teachers out there, a free French “cahier pédagogique” for that book is available for download on the author’s website.
There will be cake, fruit, refreshments, a shortreading in French by Lucie Perrin for the kids at this free launching event. Everyone is welcome and both books will be up for sale for those interested.
Here’s all the details:
