Description

This book looks at various aspects of France: the origin of its name, its nickname, its flag, its national anthem, the motto of the French Republic (Liberty, Equality and Fraternity), its national day (known as Bastille Day in English as it commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison on 14th July 1789), as well as mentioning the figure of Marianne, the symbol of the Republic. The models for Marianne are often famous French actresses (eg Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve, Sophie Marceau).

Pupils can easily and quickly read this short, attractive, highly-illustrated French book for a sense of enjoyment and achievement. The book can be used to introduce children to reading in French and help them to improve their reading skills.

It strongly supports Intercultural Understanding by making a point of revealing, via the texts and the pictures, various cultural aspects of life in France or French-speaking countries.
