It’s Carnival time! The Carnaval de Nice is one of the world’s most famous Carnivals—along with those in Rio de Janeiro and Venice, and Mardi Gras in New Orleans—but Carnaval isn’t just for big cities. Towns and schools all across France celebrate with costumes, parades, and special foods.

Here are some fun books that share the festive spirit with little ones, and encourage them to read in French. They’re recommended for ages ranging from 2-and-up to 6-and-up, but as always, it’s the young readers themselves, their parents and teachers who know best which books to choose—and this is especially true when it comes to reading in a second language.

Au carnaval des animaux

Carnival time has come: put your costumes on! All the animals are getting ready... but what are they going to dress up as for this happy parade? It's up to you to guess!

Ages 2 and up.

Le carnaval des dragons

In Draguignan, it’s the Year of the Dragon. The mayor has declared that the most beautiful dragon presented at the Carnival will become the city’s emblem! The schoolchildren immediately imagine an extraordinary beast, but the contest it for adults only…

Ages 3 to 6.

Le Carnaval

Jules dresses up as a monster for Carnival, and heads out to find his friends. But what’s going on? Everything is mixed up! Who can sort out all the costumes?

Ages 3 to 6.

Le carnaval de la savane

When drought season ends, the animals of the savannah celebrate with a big carnival. The hippos, rhinos, elephants, ostriches, monkeys, giraffes… everyone’s there, except for the little ostrich Malou. Can her friend Okazou figure out how to get Malou to join in the fun?

Ages 3 and up.
