Everybody Bonjours! by Leslie Kimmelman
Reviewed by Mrs. Kirby-LeMon at Skano
If faraway places interest you, then you'll enjoy Everybody Bonjours! A young girl and her family board a plane and fly to Paris for a vacation. While there, they visit a zoo, a sports stadium and a fancy hotel, to name a few. You can learn a great deal about this beautiful location, because the endpapers (we love interesting endpapers) show a map of the city. Facts about the attractions are included under "Out and About in Paris."
In the beginning of the story, "Monsieur LeMousie" (a little mouse) teaches us how to say 'hello' and 'thank you' in French. Look for Monsieur LeMousie on every page--sometimes it's tricky, but he's there somewhere.
Say "bonjours" to your library and check out this fun rhyming book!
