Exciting Bilingual Find!
I was thrilled to find this book and cd set on Christianbook.com. We received it in a timely manner about a month ago and it has already become a family favorite. My daughter is only 2.5, so we don't do much with the stories and dialogue in between the songs yet, but I think the content is great and look forward to using this product more and in different ways as she gets older. I do agree with other reviewers, though, when they suggest that the music and dialogue could be on separate tracks. But I think is a minor detail. I am happy to have found a quality Christian product for us to use in our second language.

Absolutely beautiful!!! My children love this CD. We dance and sing for hours listening to it. I am teaching them French and this is a fabulous learning tool that is all about Jesus. The French pronunciation is so clear and easily understood. I am so grateful that I ordered this CD and booklet. I highly recommend it.

I Love this CD! This will be my first year teaching French in a small, private Elementary school and I intend to teach several of these songs to the children. I was really happy and relieved once I realized that these are not just the English words of these songs transliterated into French equivalents. The songs use French idioms and rhyme to communicate the same idea but in "French" French and not "Franglais." So why not 5 stars? For ease of use in the classroom, it would have been better to make each song and the little skits/dialogues in between a separate track. As it is, some tracks have the French version of a song followed by the English version and then some narrative all in the same track. Still, this is a very small blemish on an otherwise awesome resource!
