When my family traveled to Paris last December they brought back a few french children’s books for Izzy. She absolutely loves them! Especially the book that sings nursery rhymes to her in French. I always love adding new books to her library so I decided to create a list of french-themed children’s books. My family enjoys traveling and I pray one day we can take Izzy to France to experience all the beauty, food, and art she will read about in these books.
7 Children’s French Books
