La chèvre de M. Seguin by Alphonse Daudet

This product was recommended by Olivia Tan from CocoFax

Daudet tells the stories in first person, painting a picture of what his life is like now that he has left Paris and moved to Provence. Some of the stories are about his routines in southern France, while others are based on Provençal folktales. The French, and especially people from Provence, adore Les lettres de mon moulin for its depiction of local culture. Beloved Provençal author and filmmaker Marcel Pagnol made a film adaptation of Les lettres de mon moulin in 1954.

At school, the other children make fun of her hair, but Adé learns to be confident with the help of her mom and aunts. Laura Nsafou published a new children’s book in 2020 called Le chemin de Jada, which I also highly recommend.

A Boy Called Hope Pocket Book by Lara Williamson

The book is extraordinarily framed. It is the tale of Dan Hope, a man who wished for a plethora of exciting dreams, ranging from helping himself to helping Sherlock Holmes.
