Our picture books

The Moon in Daytime

Have you ever thought about why the moon is still visible during the day even though we said good night to it just before going to sleep at night? Our first picture book explains to the three- to six-year olds through funny, characters and an inquisitive little boy just why we can see the moon in daytime. In English and in French.

A Pet Lion

Lucy wants a pet lion. She only sees a big, furry cat with gleaming eyes and beautiful fur. She has no fear of the big cat's sharp teeth or an understanding of what a lion might need to survive. A Pet Lion reveals Lucy's discovery of the king of the jungle and her understanding of its needs. In English and in French.
