Chelsea and Sacha a year ago, right before Sacha left for Seattle.
A blog reader of mine asked me about French gifts for her grandson who is four years old. I thought I would add my list of gift ideas (books) for children here on my blog. With that said my mother would suggest that the best gift to give is the gift of spending time with a child by playing with them, cooking, and or simply hanging out with them.
Reading was one of my favorite things to do with Chelsea and Sacha. Reading to them also helped me keep English alive in our home. Chelsea listened closely and study the illustrations, Sacha liked to skip pages ahead, then flip the pages back, and asks questions in between (drove Chelsea crazy). Their personalities were defined early on and it was a challenge to read to them with their various styles of learning and listening.
Below are a few of our favorite books, plus some that I have learned about overtime. These stories are about France or the French.
