10 Fantastic French Books for First Graders

Figuring out what a mysterious thingy is for, chatting with a bear who reads, making big green monsters go away… there’s a lot of fun to be had in our favorite books for first graders who are learning French.

Which books does your first grader most enjoy? Please let us know in the comments section below!

Le machin

One day, Bobo the elephant finds a strange thingy near the big lake. After looking at it every which way, he decides it’s a hat. But not everyone agrees! Kiki the alligator things it’s a cape; Zaza the sheep, a pretty skirt; Juju the duck, a scarf… and then the ant takes the thingy and uses it as a comfy blanket. Finally, a little boy arrives and solves the riddle.

Le loup est revenu

Mr. Rabbit is afraid to go to sleep. He’s just read some terrible news: the wolf is back!

KNOCK! KNOCK! KNOCK! Is it the wolf? No, it’s just three little pigs. 

KNOCK! KNOCK! KNOCK! Is it the wolf? No, it’s Mrs. Goat and her seven kids.

KNOCK! KNOCK! KNOCK! This time… is it the wolf?

Ours qui lit

A bear that reads? That’s not something you see every day.

Bear, what are you reading?

I’m reading the list of animals I have to eat today.

Ah… I’m on it?

Nina et Noé font du sport

Nina and Noé play sports every day except Sundays. They tell us about their daily activities, and all the fun they have. This book encourages young readers to get active, and reinforces days of the week.

Patou la mêle-tout

Late one night, when everyone else is asleep, a curious little witch spots an old house, all lit up. She can’t help herself: she just has to investigate.

Elmer joue à cache-cache

The bird is hiding, and Elmer must find it. Is it behind a pink rock? Or red flowers? Or is in in a green tree? Little ones can lift the flaps to help Elmer find his friend...

Va-t'en, Grand Monstre Vert !

Caldecott Award-winning author-artist Ed Emberley offers little ones a chance to chase away their nighttime fears. Kids can turn the pages of this die-cut book and watch the Big Green Monster grow. Then, when they're ready to show him who's in charge, they'll turn the remaining pages and watch him disappear!

Nous ce qu'on préfère

What does a rabbit eat? Carrot soup. And a mouse? Gruyère soup—nothing too surprising there. But the frog eats fly soup… not very appetising. And the little bird eats worms! When the wolf arrives, what does he eat?
