book to introduce winter in french

Who’s ready for winter? At our place, the holiday season arrived early this year. With Covid restrictions in full force, we decided not to wait till December to begin the festivities. The tree is already decorated, the lights are up, we’re baking cookies, listening to Christmas music, and drinking copious amounts of hot chocolate! This also means that we’re using French winter vocabulary almost daily in our household. The Scholastic book, Voici l’hiver, is a great resource to introduce winter in French. It contains seasonal nouns, verbs, and expressions that you can use while you start your family holiday preparations. The sweet story, along with the beautiful imagery, will make your child look forward to the joys of the season.
