Reviews For Skateboarder Magazine

Excellent for learning French!

My 7-year-old daughter speaks French pretty well but is still learning to read. Mes premiers j'aime lire magazine is wonderful. Each issue comes with a short story that is also read on the accompanying CD (5-10 minutes in length). The stories are interesting and while written for children always have new vocabulary words that neither of us know. I enjoy listening to the CDs and my daughter listens to them over and over again! In addition to the main story, there are several "bandes dessinees" (comic strips) in each issue, a word search or other simple word games, and 2 pages of definitions for particularly challenging vocabulary. This is a wonderful addition to our regular French learning curriculum and highly recommended. It took almost 2 months before the first issue was delivered but now I get them regularly and in excellent condition.
