“As a fluent French speaker, I am keen for my daughter to grow up being bilingual. I read to her in French every night. As for my husband, he can only speak English. Reading Max et Sacha is wonderful because both of us are able to read it and understand it, and it allows Alice to see that there are two distinct languages. Alice really enjoys the story and she asks to read the book over and over again. (My husband is also learning French with this!)”Hayley Mac Donald
“Speaking as a Dad who regrets not doing more with languages at school, I was thrilled to find it was loved by the kids but accessible and relevant to me too. The book is more than a language tool though; it has a delightful story that is beautifully illustrated and simply a joy to read. I would encourage any parent wanting to help their children explore French to invest in this great book.”Nigel Morgan
“Wow, what a cute and fun way to learn some French. This short story about two young brothers has my daughter excited to read and learn more about the French language. It’s a perfect beginner book.”Jamie and Kailyn Daddario

“I know just how easily kids can pick up and retain new language skills, after all, I see it every day! I was inspired by my boys and my passion for languages to create the Max & Sacha series and I hope my new books will make foreign languages fun, accessible and relevant to all who read them!”
