Synopsis: This story serves up a delightful recipe for a children's book: take one adorable tale of Parisian mice who want to win the prize for the best cheese soup in France, add a full serving of the whimsical illustrations of Marie LeTourneau, mix in a dash of French language and a sprinkling of Parisian café culture, and voilà! We have The Mice of Bistrot des Sept Frères (Bistro of Seven Brothers).
With many basic French words cleverly woven into the story, readers will absorb the language without even realizing it. There is a pronunciation guide at the front of the book, and directions in the back to this website for the famous cheese soup recipe!
Review: A beautifully illustrated children's book with a delightful story. The story is written in English, but is a good introduction to French words. I highly recommend this book for kids of all ages. It's a great bedtime read, and the illustrations will delight kids and adults alike. I highly recommend this book. It's something you'll want to read for years to come!
