Les Petits Livres
Never be without reading materials for your little francophones.
Les Petits Livres is a business whose mission is to make children's books in French easily available in the United States: books in French for children can be hard to find in the U.S. and expensive to ship from France or Canada. We believe it's important for children to be exposed to books of all kinds. We provide you with that possibility: lots of books at affordable prices and since we work like a library, you do not have to keep the books once you've read them. In addition, we realize that it can be hard to select age-appropriate books for children, especially if you are not a speaker of French: so let us do it for you. See How it Works for all the details.
Our founder, Anne-Marie, is a native of Brittany, France. She has now made the United States her home. She has three children, three boys aged 13, 10 and 7 who are bicultural French/English. Her motivation to start Les Petits Livres comes from her passion for books and from the difficulty to find enough of them for children, written in the French language: every night, since her children were born, her husband (whose native tongue is English) and her have read to the children: the dad in English, Anne-Marie in French. She attributes the fact that all three boys are good readers and book lovers to that daily routine. But it was not easy to find the books at the time.....
"I want to provide an on-line library of high-quality children's books in French so that the parents and grand-parents who want to raise their children or grand-children bi-culturally can do so without the struggle of constantly looking for new reading materials. As we know, it's not enough to be bilingual: if we want our children to continue their acquisition and appreciation of a given language, they need to be able to read in that language. They need to be bi-literal. I hope that Les Petits Livres will help you in your goal of raising bi-literal kids. We strive for excellent customer satisfaction. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, should you have any questions about our service or the books we carry or anything else."
Les Petits Livres a pour mission de mettre en circulation, aux Etats-Unis, des livres pour enfants en langue francaise. Les livres pour enfants en Français sont difficiles à trouver aux Etats-Unis et coûteux à faire venir de France ou du Canada. Avec nos différentes formules de location, nous vous offrons la possibilité d'exposer vos enfants à de la littérature jeunesse en Français, et ceci à un coût modeste.
