Description

This vibrant, engaging assortment offers children an entertaining introduction to the French Language. From stories of friendship, family, discovery, and self-esteem to silly, snappy songs of one-of-a-kind barnyard animals, lullabies, and segments of classical music, children tune in to a variety of musical styles and multicultural experiences. The accompanying CDs provide children an opportunity to hear the pronunciation of the words and sing along as they learn the Language.

 

Oh, that darn Frédéric—he’ll do anything to get out of learning how to play an instrument, much to the chagrin of his loving parents who named him after the great Chopin. One day however, the little fellow falls under the spell of his sister’s youth orchestra conductor and owns up to his name by spinning some magic and writing a fabulous song. Many of the songs on the accompanying CD are rooted in the style of a musical and feature tunes such as “Fou de vous, les dinosaures!” (Crazy for the Dinosaurs), “Un bouton sur le joli nez de Sara” (The Pimple of Lovely Sara's Nose), and “La cuillère enchantée” (The Enchanted Spoon).
