Paris, Up, Up and Away



Vivi has mastered reading in French now and she is experimenting with this new found skill and figuring out how to apply it to English, which is sometimes quite easy and sometimes not so much. It is actually very cute, she pronounces the English words with a strange French accent and the translates the word into “normal English”.


At the moment she is testing all of this out on picture books and so I wanted to tell you about the lovely book “Paris, Up, Up and Away” we recently received! It might actually count as one of Vivi’s favourite books at the moment. It is beautifully designed with one laser cut page leading into the other as we follow the Eiffel tower soaring over Paris and discovering all of the sites. It is perfect to practice reading on, with a poetic text and enough illustrations to help out if there is any insecurity about a word.


I also think this would be a great book to read before coming to Paris with kids!
