Book series: Sami by Mary Labatt

Readers: SamiThese books are great for teaching kids how to read in French and also for language development.  The text in each one is simple and the pictures are engaging. We used them for read-aloud books when my kids were 4 and 2 years old, and then again for reading practice for my daughter when she was around 7 (to see the full list of readers we used, click here).    The main character is an adorable puppy, so it was quite easy to motivate her to read these books!  My son quite enjoyed seeing the antics the puppy got into and I’m sure he’ll be ready to hear the stories again when he reads them himself soon.

Our local library has these books.  If yours doesn’t, you can find them on
