A great deal about the culture and contributions of France are shared in this alphabetic tale. From Amphitheaters, Aqueducts, and Arles to Zest, there's little left to the imagination, as readers learn all there is to know about France and the French culture. The book is ideal for many ages, but seemingly most appropriate for children 8+. Older children will find much benefit from the side-barred text that provides additional detailed information about the alphabetic topic at hand!
