This is the perfect book to have fun with your pupils at any age! As early as on the 1st reading, as soon as you have introduce the phrases, the children will be able to join in with "Oh! Dommage! Bien essayé quand même. Bravo...!" on every other page. On second reading, they will be able to add the name of the animal in French and on third reading they will want to say the onomatopoeia. So apart from the twist in the last couple of pages... the children will in effect be telling the story!

This is a really fun story to tell and have the children take part in; they will love it! The repeated phrase ("Oh! Dommage! Bien essayé quand même. Bravo...!") will very naturally become part of your standard classroom phrases and could come in very handy in many circumstances.

The children will remember the different onomatopoeia and names of animals after joining in with: "Oh! Dommage! Bien essayé quand même. Bravo...!" on every other page!
They could rewrite the story with their own animals and their own onomatopoeia.
