As I went for a walk the other day, I found this bookstore next to the Language School. Of course, every single book inside has to do with the learning of foreign languages, so I couldn't help myself and went inside. I asked for reading materials for toddlers in either German or French, so the lady there kindly showed me where to find those. I came across this textbook named "Tatou le matou: Le Français pour les petits," and I bought it for my daughter. It seems to me that she is still too young for it (I only bought the "Level 1" book + accompanying CDs), but I'll definitely try to use it when she's a little bit older (well, not me, since I don't speak French, but the very cool student who reads to her in French might be able to use it more productively than I would!). Has anyone used this textbook for their children before, and if so, what do you think of it? Also, do you have any recommendations about similar French programs/materials?
Amy: And to all other fellow zookeepers of course!

Wojtek: Yesterday my daughter used a Polish word in an English sentence. From time to time she does it (don't know if I should be happy about that), but anyway what was amusing about that, she said it with an English accent!

Wojtek: I feel the English accent in our monolingual family has seemed to be something unreachable but in that mixed sentence, I heard the difference. It surprised me slightly.

Mayken: Adam Beck, Amy, she got a lot of ml exposure but there's only so many times I can watch a Bibi & Tina DVD. Glad she's back at school today.

Mayken: My daughter's school had the annual lantern pageant yesterday. It always moves me to tears when I see the kids stand and belt out the songs in our ml. This year, the ml kids also recited a short poem on St Martin.
