Paris s'envole (in French) or Paris, Up, Up and Away (in English) by Hélène Druvert. A very whimsical book: The Eiffel Tower decides to fly to see Paris from a different point of view. The beauty of this book are intricate black cut-outs of Paris.
J'y vais by Matthieu MaudetAbout a bird leaving his nest. His family and friends each give him something as he walks out of his nest and down the long branch. A funny surprise at the end of where he is actually going.
Les orteils n'ont pas de nom by Jean LeRoy and Mattieu Maudet The toes are upset that they don't have individual names like fingers do. Read the creative names the toes brainstorm.
Roule and Saute by Tatsuhide Matsuoka. Very simple book about all different animals that roll (roule) and jump (saute). Great repetition and good for learning the simple present conjugation of these two regular -er verbs.
Manger un loup by Vincent Bourgeau and Cédric Ramadier. Great book for learning some kitchen tools and simple kitchen terminology. Very funny book about a pig who wants to make wolf soup.
Mon bus and Mon velo by Bryon Barton. These two books are great for those who like to learn about different vehicules (mon bus) or about the parts of the bike (mon velo).
Bon appetit, Monsieur Lapin by Claude Boujon. Monsieur rabbit no longer likes to eat carrots. He asks his animal friends what they like to eat but none of those meals seem appetizing to Monsieur Lapin. He makes the mistake of asking the loup(wolf) what he likes to eat and learns the hard way that the loup likes rabbits. Luckily the wolf only eats Monsieur Lapin's ears and the Monsieur Lapin starts to like to eat carrots again, especially since it helps him to grow his ears back.
La chenille qui fait des trous(The Hungry Caterpillar) by Eric Carle.
