I found a wonderful video on You-Tube

Do you think you could do a project on the Eiffel Tower?

My Thoughts

If I were you and lived in France I would speak French.  My home would be in Western Europe.  Maybe I would live close to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.  Pari is also known as "The City of Light".  My name might be Jacqueline and instead of calling my parents Mommy or Daddy I would call them Maman and Papa.  If we visited the Eiffel tower we would get to take an elevator to the top.  

Can you guess the most popular sport in France?  What would you like to know about children's culture in France?

I enjoyed pretending to be French.  Living near the Eiffel Tower would be so amazing.  The author had some wonderful facts about France and the culture of the people who live there.  The writing and illustrations were informative to a child's standpoint with bold primary colors that will stimulate there minds and imagination wanting to learn more about France.  

I am looking forward to book three in this series.

I highly recommend this book. This would be a good series to have in a school, classroom. library or a child's home library.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

Disclosure:  I received a free copy of this book from the author/Bostick Communications for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  This review is my honest opinion.
