La Petite Josette En Provence: Going To Les Baux-de-Provence (Voyage aux Baux-de-Provence) is a bilingual story book for children written by Ashley Davidson-Fisher and illustrated by Martinique Louise Fisher. Josette and her sister, Anne-Laure, were so eager for their day trip to Les Baux-de-Provence to begin. When Anne-Laure went to wake up her little sister, she was surprised to see that Josette was already dressed and waiting. Josette helped her dad put their bags and picnic supplies in the car while Anne-Laure and their mom made a picnic lunch for them. Finally, it was time to leave. On the way there, they passed through vineyards and rolling green hills. Then they saw the village and the castle ruins perched high atop a hill. Anne-Laure and Josette couldn’t wait to get out of the car and explore.
La Petite Josette En Provence: Going To Les Baux-de-Provence is a charming and informative tale that follows Josette and her family as they explore the historic ruins at Les Baux-de-Provence. While it’s been some time since I studied French, I loved revisiting the language through this book and enjoyed exploring the ruins along with the girls and their parents. Davidson-Fisher interposes French and English phrases in such a way that those who are new to the language will be able to understand what’s being said while appreciating learning the French words and phrases. She also gives the reader a marvelous peek into French history.
Martinique Louise Fisher’s watercolors are most impressive. I’d love to see each of these marvelous images framed and hanging in a child’s room. If you don’t know French, this is a great introduction to the language, and if you’ve been away from the language for a while, you’ll soon feel right at home with it. La Petite Josette En Provence: Going To Les Baux-de-Provence (Voyage aux Baux-de-Provence) is most highly recommended.
