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?
What's on your mind right now? Just type and hit "Enter" to share it here!

Adam Beck: Amy, western Japan, where we live, was spared, but the typhoon hit central and eastern Japan very hard. Thank you for thinking of us. I'm thinking of you and your family, along with everyone I met during my trip! (And I can picture you now, too!)

Mayken: Last night, I couldn't think of the ml word for puffin, and my daughter beat me to it, in a cute way: It's Papageitaucher (literally parrot diver) but she said Tauchpapagei (diving parrot).

Amy: It's a relief to hear you're all safe Adam Beck! Mayken, I loved that cute story and I love how your ml structures its words, it is always so much fun and interesting.
