10 Fun French Books for Grade Two

Fun adventures await second graders who enjoy books in French! Our top picks include a classic story flipped on its head, some very funny new friends, and inspiration for little ones who like to dream of what they’ll be when they grow up.

What does your second grader love to read? Please let us know in the comments below!

Le petit chaperon qui n'était pas rouge

The “Little Blue Girl” must walk through the woods to bring honey to her sick grandmother. The story seems familiar, but it’s full of surprises! The red riding hood has become blue, the cake has been replaced by a balalaika, and instead of a big bad wolf, there’s a helpful and friendly bear. To make things even more fun, readers get to choose among three endings to the story.

Le loup sentimental

Lucas the wolf has decided it’s time to leave the family home and make a life for himself—and everyone is sad to see him go. As Lucas is setting out, his dad gives him a list of good things to eat. But alas, Lucas is a softie, and lets a lot of tasty food get away: a goat and its seven kids, Little Red Riding Hood, three fat piggies… how on earth is Lucas going to calm his hungry tummy?

Caché!

“Find me,” says Little Wolf, hiding in the city. He’s not easy to find, but it’s so much fun, searching in the zoo, the bakery, or even among the paintings in the museum.

Dans la maison de ma grand-mère

After school, Sally goes to her grandma’s house. She hangs up her coat, goes to the kitchen for a glass of milk… but where’s Grandma? Sally searches the whole hose for her, room by room. From the living room to the attic, Grandma’s house is full of surprises!

Gruffalo

A mouse is taking a stroll through the deep, dark wood when along comes a hungry fox, then an owl, and then a snake. The mouse is good enough to eat but smart enough to know this, so he invents . . . the gruffalo! As Mouse explains, the gruffalo is a creature with terrible claws, and terrible tusks in its terrible jaws, and knobbly knees and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of its nose. But Mouse has no worry to show. After all, there's no such thing as a gruffalo….

Le géant de Zéralda

How do you stop an ogre from devouring children? Make him delicious meals every day, of course! And that’s just what little Zéralda did from the time she was six.

Théo Météo

After the rain comes the sun. Théo loves making weather forecasts. That’s why he’s called Théo Météo, even if he’s wrong pretty often. Join Théo for adventures in the rain, the wind, and the sun.

L'Afrique de Zigomar

Pipioli the little mouse dreams of going to Africa like his friend the swallow. Zigomar the blackbird agrees to take him there, but he has no sense of direction. An unexpected voyage awaits the pair!
