Loup does not like reading but is made to look for 10 lost books... will it make him realise how great reading can actually be?
As I read the 1st couple of pages, I will ask the children if, like Loup, they like reading or not. I will hope that if any did not like books then by the end they will do!
After Loup finds each book, we will talk, in English, about the story mentioned. None of the titles are actually written so it wil draw on the children's knowledge and I will show them the names of the books in French (list on my website).

I love this book because it is a little like an ode to reading... and as it mentions so may classic children's stories, it cannot fail to make Loup enjoy reading in the end!
Reading this story will enable you to remind the children of those classic stories and hopefully encourage them to read them if they have not done so already. Sometimes we forget that behind a beautiful cartoon or film there often is a great book!

As a class or individually, a list of the top 10 children's books can be compiled, then you could check if those have been translated into French, and if so what they are called. It wil be a great insight for the children to see how many stories they have in common with other countries, even if the language has to be changed! It always is a positive experience to be talking about books and reading with children.
I know someone who used this as the basis for a whole term's worth of stories as they looked individually at all of the books mentioned by Loup, in French.
