The Zazoo: Let’s Discover Paris!

The Zazoo: Let’s Discover Paris! is Little Bilingue’s latest kids’ book and is available in French-English and Spanish-English. I am over the moon excited because I translated this book into Spanish with the help of my good friend Zitlaly of Mexico! This is a sponsored post. (I am an affiliate of Ornicar publishing.

We already have the first two Zazoo books: I don’t know what to wear!  and Adventures at the Beach and we love them! My daughters 8 and 11 enjoy reading them and my two year old son is head over heels in love with the Zazoo books. (I especially love it when my 8-year old Gabriela reads to my 2-year old Rémy!) Needless to say, we looked forward to the arrival of the third Zazoo book with great anticipation…

I fell in love. Yes, me. Judith outdid herself. I’ve always thought all her books were beautifully illustrated, colorful and perfect for little ones. But this one, I want to keep for me! Judith intentionally gave this book a little extra attention because she wished for it to also serve as a book to help children prepare for a trip to Paris. It is full of Parisian detail and charm: the iconic Eiffel Tower, a warm and quaint boulangerie filled with rows of delicious French pâtisseries, the tall flight of wide stairs leading us up to Sacré Coeur and the gorgeous symmetry of austere trees lining the Champs Elysées and carefully leading our eyes to the solemn majesty of the Arc de Triomphe

But I would hardly want to spoil the fun by giving away the story! Because Judith never fails us with her lively Zazoo friends – always full of energy, fun and mischief! And as always, she uses her unique method of switching from English to French as the Zazoo characters take us by the hand and draw us into their Parisian adventure. You won’t want to miss this one!

If you are seeking to raise your child bilingually in English and French, the Zazoo books are an ideal tool. The books will be translated into Spanish, German, Russian and probably Chinese and Japanese this coming year…

Each page is chockful of detail and color! Dialogues are simple and the French and English are coded in pink or blue conversation bubbles.

I love that the horizon changed for these pages to allow us to appreciate the grandiose perspective of the climb to Sacré Coeur.

The storyline is simple and the conversation flows naturally from one French phrase to one English phrase alternately. Each story comes alive with the cheeky antics of the Zazoo characters. Perfect for young children!
