French Immersion Building Your Library

According to the Kids & Family Reading Report™ Canadian Edition, many children have trouble finding books they like. Try some of these tips to have a wider selection in your French Immersion library:

  • Offer a wide variety of genres, series, characters, and authors!
  • Order from Scholastic Reading Club! This is a great way to stock up on expertly-curated French books!
  • Ask your child’s teacher or school librarian for recommendations, especially if you’re not sure what level your child is reading at in French.
  • Visit your local library and browse the French section. Your child might find a new character, author, or series of books they enjoy that you can start adding to your home library.
  • Encourage your child to read a favourite English book again, in French!
  • Check out the French section at local bookstores. Also, search for reading apps and websites that offer French language e-books.
