I am very pleased with my purchase of these books. They are easily comprehensible for beginner students. They use the same beginning verbs I have been teaching. They provide a great flood of input for students and a great springboard for student-created writing.
It was so thrilling to realize I understood all of these simple biographies of French speakers. Carla Tarini has done a beautiful job of telling the stories of women, people of color, fairly unknown scientists an artists as well as well-known heroes. The artwork is stunning. Each of the 10 subjects has a one-page bio written in the first person next to a gorgeous bio. These are worth reading and re-reading.
