« Petites Histoires » is a thematic reading program based on French albums selected from the best French publishers of children literature (Ecole des Loisirs, De La Martinière, Gallimard Jeunesse, Père Castor…). Children discover the French language through stories, fun activities, songs, role play and craft.

The Sessions welcome all children 12 months to 8 years of age, accompanied by an adult (parent/care giver). The « Petites Histoires » of La Librairie des Enfants offers authentic sounds of the French language with Matthieu and Flore who are two Native French teachers from France.

Scientific research has shown that babies are born with the ability to distinguish all the possible sounds of the world languages. Words, sounds and intonation will be naturally absorbed during a critical period of a child’s linguistic development. Young babies and toddlers have a greater capacity for tuning into foreign language sounds than at any other time in their lives, therefore a ‘good’ accent is much harder to master later and developing an ear for what ‘sounds right’ becomes impossible for some older children.

Exposing your baby/toddler to another language as early as possible will enable him/her to be better equipped with the necessary perceptual skills for learning and for speaking it with a new perfect accent!
