Take your children on a trip to Paris with Suzette, the crêpe maker, and her artistic customers. As Suzette sells her delicacies over the course of a day, you will be treated to the sights and sounds of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, from Nôtre-Dame to the Eiffel Tower. Suzette’s customers along the way are inspired by works of art, such as da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Degas’s Little Dancer. Children will learn some key French words and phrases. As delicious as Suzette’s crêpes, this book will captivate children–and parents– who will want to make the trip to Paris themselves. Bon voyage!
