Oxford First French Words gives your child a head start in learning another language. It takes the reader on a picture-book journey through a day, cleverly interwoven are lots of familiar settings and cute little dinosaurs. There is a bird’s eye view of first thing in the morning at home, the journey to school and inside the classroom, a birthday party and even a trip to the seaside. Over 400 French words and their English translations are given in illustrated colour bands on the side of each page. There is also expertly-levelled supplementary material at the back – a picture/word matching game, counting the ladybirds up to twenty, shapes both flat and three-dimensional, opposites, the weather, time, plus a comprehensive index. These David Melling (The Kiss that Missed, Fidget and Quilly) illustrations make this an adorable first bilingual word book.
