5 French Books to read for beginners

Older Post Newer Post


  • I read books from “la bibliotheque rose” and “la bibliotheque vert” and it’s great because these books are mainly for children but the stories are interesting enough for adults too

  • Hi Marie! Yes I used to practice with children’s books, it’s fine when you’re just getting started and all you want is decipher words and short sentences. I recommend the Mrs. Men, (in French "Monsieur Madame) the stories are simple but the sentences are above average, they use various tenses and a rich vocabulary!

  • Great list! I tried some children books I found in a library, not really fascinating, but it does the trick! I’ll move to 9-12 years old novels when I can.
