Product description

Simple songs and rhymes are an excellent way to familiarize young children with another language. Un Deux Trois a collection of 25 traditional nursery rhymes, is a delightful way to introduce French. An illustrated vocabulary features simple words and phrases that are easy to learn and that can be used in games or everyday life. Children are encouraged to repeat the phrases and sing along with the rhymes, and the included CD lets them know how both should sound. The lively illustrations and amusing rhymes make learning a new language fun. A guide for parents translates more difficult phrases.

This is a book of french rhymes. I thought that there r may be french songs, but no, it is what the title says.
The rhymes are easy to read and easy to remember. There is an accompanying CD, each rhyme is recorded twice, first by children, then by the author of the book (i think). So there were no sounds that i did not understand or could not repeat.
I really like the illustrations! simple, but very informative - you can use the book as a visual dictionary. In the end of the book there is translation of the rhymes and words.
Rhymes are great for practicing your pronunciation!
I would definitely recommend it to anyone who starts learning French. This book would be useful both for children and adults.
