This is the story of a girl looking for her cat around Paris.
With a small group, at first reading the children could just look for the cat on each double page and say "le chat est là!" when you ask them "Où est le chat?".
On second reading, you could point out to the children the famous monuments, for them to repeat their names. Please see my presentation on my website for links to watch videos of those places.
Then each child in the glass could be given a role in the story, on paper and to memorise, including a narrator, and the whole book could be acted out!

This story is particularly good if you want to look at Paris with your children, or you are after cultural pointers. There are so many to exploit in this story, at different levels.

The children will be learning about Paris and could compare it to their area; they could even draw a street in Paris then their street and talk about the differences and similarities with where Lola lives.

Topics or themes:
Paris; cultural knowledge about France; in town; shops
