This book contains brief interviews with children from some of the French-speaking areas/countries around the world: Belgium, Algeria, Gabon, Quebec, Martinique, New Caledonia. If possible, locate these areas on a map of the world. Stress the value of being able to speak French, not only in France, which may surprise pupils. You could do some cross-curricular work studying the historical reasons for this, as many countries where French is spoken today were French colonies in past years. Pupils can easily and quickly read this short, attractive, highly-illustrated French book for a sense of enjoyment and achievement. The book can be used to introduce children to reading in French and help them to improve their reading skills. It strongly supports Intercultural Understanding by making a point of revealing, via the texts and the pictures, various cultural aspects of life in France or French-speaking countries. This book is one of six Brilliant French Information Books at Level 3.
