This is a lovely simple story which the children will be able to relate to and can be read to introduce the topic of autumn with a class or anything to do with the weather. It just needs to be shared with a class who will quickly be able to join in with the simple sentences but also simple actions to go with each page.

I want to use it because of this simplicity which will make the children feel that they can be part of the story. The story can also be re-written to apply to the other seasons.

The children will benefit from an increase in confidence as they realise that they can understand then tell a whole story in French; they will pick up on new words which they may not have known; they will enjoy writing their own stories about the other seasons as they will have to think carefully about what represents each one.

Topics or themes:
daily routine; hobbies; seasons; weather
