Does anyone have some titles of good and fun poetry for children ages 5-9 in French?
I can't find anything at the library or local bookstores. I have one book called Comptines-picotines, rigolotes, ratatouilles that comes with a CD, but we are a bit bored of it. Looking for something new and silly.
I think it will be hard to find something new and silly. I also don't have kids that age so won't be of much help, but the first 'poet appropriate for young children' that came to mind for me was Jacques Prévert. There are a lot of Prévert songs for children that are set to music, too.
This may seem a bit serious compared to what you are used to as an Anglophone parent, but it is certainly more 'French-kid-like', and I suppose the cultural exposure is part of learning the language!
There are lots of 'silly' non-poetry books for children. However, one thing that I've noticed is that the basis of the 'silliness' is rather different in many cases than what it would be in Anglophone countries (for example, there may be more sexual innuendos), so depending on what your thoughts are on this you may want to check them out first. Personally it doesn't bother me, but I know that it is an issue for some Anglophones.

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.

Mayken: Veda, when you go to your "Profile", there's a button at the top right that says "Edit Profile". Then click on the "Personal" tab (and other tabs) to edit the information. Hope that helps!
