Weekend reading: a kids’ book about cooking—in French
Hélène Laurendeau and Catherine Desforges , illustrated by Stéphanie Aubin. Je Cuisine Avec Toi. Edito, 2018.
Here’s a way to teach kids French and cooking at the same time. The book is about cooking as a fun activity for kids, but without recipes. The authors explain:
You get to play with tools, measure ingredients, get dirty, and even lick the spoon at the end…We wanted to teach kids to persevere and to know that the important thing is to enjoy the process, not just the result.
It’s witty and entertaining for parents as well as kids.
The authors are looking for a way to get the book translated into English. If you have any ideas about who can help with that, contact email@example.com.
