Keep Learning Fresh in the Summer with My First French Book Words

DK Canada

While summer is all about fun and getting outside, don’t forget about learning too! Our children can forget so much over the summer months so it is important to keep up those skills by practicing their math and language skills.



Our eldest had his first year of French lessons at school and he fell in love with the language (can you blame him?). It also brought back so many memories for me as well. Children that can speak two languages definitely have a strong advantage and I want this for my kids, especially as Canadians it is important to speak both French and English.

My First French Book Words covers topics ranging from toys to farm animals to shapes food. The book contains both the English and French word to accompany each picture.

The best features of this book:

  • bold and bright photos that draw your attention
  • easily divided tabs on the top and side of the book so you can jump ahead to a preferred section (or find your spot again)
  • a fantastic variety of words that goes well beyond the basics (for example parrots, budgies and guinea pigs are included in the animal section)
  • thick pages to help little hands turn the pages themselves (a must for those independent children!)
  • the writing was kid friendly and easy to read

DK Canada’s My First French Book Words will be the perfect tool to expose your children to the French language and garner their interest in learning a second language. Make sure you check out the DK Oh Canada Boutique this summer for lots more fun!

Does your child speak another language at home?

    My husband is French so we’re raising our kids bilingual and my eldest is starting Grade 1 in the fall – which is kinda scary. That said, I think this would still be great for her for site word recognition because she isn’t at reading yet in either language. We do a lot of spelling out of words that repeat in certain stories we read to see if she starts to recognize – I figure it’ll come. But books like this work for my three-year-old for vocab and my 5-year-old for spelling out words – which is great!
