Today’s French book in focus is “Touche à tout : L’automne” by Éditions Scholastic. There are many reasons it’s one of my favourite French books for kids for the fall.

Touche à tout : L’automne is a beautiful touch-and-feel book that introduces babies and infants to the magic of fall through its beautiful vibrant imagery and varied tactile elements. This engaging small-format board book is softly padded, yet durable, likely to withstand the curious baby. If it gets dirty, you can easily wipe it clean with a damp cloth. We’ve had this book for over a year now, and it still looks new.
We love bringing this book with us on our nature walks and pointing out the different animals and plants that we encounter.

While we haven’t had the chance to see un renard, we’ve come across everything else this book. So really do take it with you when you’re out in nature this fall! It’s a fantastic way to explore and learn French.
