Captivating French books for your child!


 The Holiday season is starting soon and October/November seems like a good time to start thinking about gifts and other goodies. Picking a nice book for a friend is always my favorite!

But, I know how complicated it can get when you are trying to pick some books for your French-speaking child and don't speak the language yourself. This is where I can help! (This service is also available for adults.)

I'm on a mission to find captivating French books for your child! The process is simple:

1- Shoot me an email with information about your child: Boy or girl? Age? What are her/his interests? Which kind of books does she/he usually like?

2- Pick your package: $80 for 5 books or $128 for 8 books.

3- Pay via Venmo .

4- Pick up your books at my house December 12th-13th.

PLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL NEED ALL INFO AND PAYMENT BY NOVEMBER 4th TO PROCESS ORDERS IN TIME FOR HOLIDAY DELIVERY.
