The pleasure of reading French both at school and home

Helping your child learn a second language that you may not know very well or, really, at all, can be quite a challenge. Your child will have an easier time learning the language if they get to practice it outside school too. You’ll find our L’école des Max program offers a rich and dynamic learning experience with books by celebrated authors and illustrators where children can begin to explore real literature. The captivating and fun stories, with illustrations that help children intuit the meaning of the text, will broaden their cultural horizons and keep them reading whether at home or in school.

Marie Barguirdjian writes art books for younger readers and is also involved in education on reading and publishing. She is active in developing and promoting a book subscription program – L’école des loisirs (Max series) – designed to encourage reading in both schools and homes. She lectures and conducts workshops on art and literature for youth for teachers and parents.
