Franglais Soup e, is a gently illustrated rhyming abecedarian book in English and French. By using words that sound the same and have the same meaning, “new” language acquisition seems effortless, and the listener/reader can hear and develop new vocabulary with visual aids or build on an existing core.

All of the words selected in the book start with the same letter in both English and French to enforce visual comprehension. The concept is that once the book is finished in one language, the reader may flip it upside down and start again in the alternate language.

– Parents and teachers will find this book, with its lilting rhymes and gentle illustrations, an engaging book to be read to babies or pre-readers as a way of introducing vocabulary bolstered by illustrations that are clear and pleasant. For the reader (parent), this book presents the opportunity for dual language learning. For the reading child, the book will stimulate mastery of basic words in two languages, supported by rhyming and illustrations.

– The author/Illustrator is a bi-lingual, classically trained Shakespearean actor who currently teaches English to Journalism and Communication Majors in France. The book was created with her 5 year old daughter and students as a game to find words that were similar in both French and English. By using rhythm and musicality to create the rhymes, the author/illustrator was able to focus on the things that were the same rather than things that were different between the 2 languages.
