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?
SheilaC: I am concern about our upcoming big change to Public school with all English teaching and minimal Spanish. We have been lucky until now with Spanish speaking Nanny and Spanish immersion preschool. We are doing 2-day per week with Spanish after school.

Amy: @sheilac, I suggest you create an actual thread on the "Questions & Concerns" board, so fellow Zoo Keepers can help you with your concerns. 256 characters is too little to discuss something that is so important to your heart

Mayken: Adam Beck, thanks for that very interesting and timely post - it justifies the large order for ml books and DVDs I'm about to place in view of my daughters upcoming birthday!

Adam Beck: Great to hear this, Mayken! And happy birthday to both yours and mine! (They have the same birthday, don't they?) And if anyone missed that post, here's the link once more...

Mayken: It's our last night in Canada. We've said goodbye to our English-speaking and bilingual English/French friends but we have lots of memories and souvenirs. Let's see how I can keep up the momentum back home.
