ABC French is a gorgeously illustrated, engaging read that makes learning the alphabet and French words fun for the entire family. Learning French has never been more fantastique! The book pairs each letter of the French alphabet with a French word and its English translation. The included pronunciation guide helps teach the proper pronunciation of each word, making this book a perfect introduction to the French language. With colorful, engaging illustrations from children’s book author and illustrator Daniel Roode, both children and adults will love learning a new language with ABC French.
Such a fun board book to introduce you to French, though there aren’t any phonetic spellings, so it’s best if you already have a little background of the language. Each letter shows an animal that starts with that letter (in French). A nice addition to an alphabet book as the ending reviews the alphabet and animals, showing them all playing together. The illustrations are very cute. I would have rated it higher if it had the phonetic spelling to help you sound out the words. :)
