This is the most beautiful story about animals who wake each other up... to go and see the sun rise!!
This is such a repetitive story that children of all ages, after a 1st reading, will love joining in with "Réveille-toi!" Déjà?" "Et hop! D'un bond, les voilà partis".

The pictures are clear, the animals and their colours stand out nicely against a background of sky which is getting lighter...
It is a peaceful and positive story to share at any time of the day; the animals don't seem to be ready to wake up, except from the rabbit, but are all enjoy watching the sunrise together and look forward to a new day. I love the positive message which it sends.

The pupils would enjoy sharing the story with you to introduce (6 of them) or reinforce names of animals in French; I am sure they would want to be able to say in French what colours the animals were so this book can be used to talk about adjectival agreement with colours.

Topics or themes:
Animals, colours, seasons

Imperative, reflexive verbs, adjectives and agreements, adverbs
