A great novel for true beginners of any age!
This is the first book in the Isabelle series. It is a fluency fast novella written in French that uses a vocabulary of only 230 words to tell a 2300 word story. The reader is repetitive, simple and uses many cognates to make the book comprehensible to beginning adults and children.
Isabelle is a 8 1/2-year-old girl who can't seem to keep herself out of trouble on a visit to Paris with her mother. She wants to be the president when she grows up. Or a ballerina. Or the president and a ballerina. She's dramatic. She sings on the subway, screams like a baby after eating a cheese that is too strong, and convinces her mom to buy new shoes for a big family. No matter how ofter her mom asks her to sit down like a normal little girl, she just can't help getting up to take more pictures of her adventures. When will Isabella ever sit down?
