This post is an I Know How to Bonjour book review and free PDF of French/English 3-part cards. I Know How to Bonjour is by Susanne Aspley, and is illustrated by Lucas Richards. It was translated by Laurence Gallarato. This book looks at learning French from the perspective of a child who speaks English attending a French immersion kindergarten for the first time. All the words are new! The teacher smiles and laughs, which can be understood, but bonjour is not a word she knows. I received this book for free as part of the Multicultural Children’s Book Day event. I-Know-How-To-Bonjour-book-cover
The child soon realizes that people are more alike than different. Bilingual education is growing as people recognize the benefits of early language learning.  It is a McKnight Artist Fellowship book. Is has an AIGA 2014 Design Series Award, also. This is a book in a series. Each book focuses on a different language such as Chinese, Spanish, and French.

Susanne Ashley is a retired Sergeant First Class among many other interesting things! This is a link to her bio. Her books are part of the Multicultural Children’s Book Day event, and she has written other stories as well. I’m still trying to figure out if Granola, MN, is a real town or not. I also live in Minnesota. I suspect it is more on the order of Lake Wobegone (a fictional location).

bilingualThis is my 5th post for this year’s Multicultural Children’s Book Day. The first post is at this link and tells all about the event. Have you noticed a little girl in some of the pictures on my blog? She is bilingual as her mother and relatives are from France and Reunion Island. I have previously made some French printables, as you may know.
