Starting April Off Right!

Here are a few quick photos of both FRENCH and English books being added to my ever-growing liquidation section…and I must say many of the best finds are still to be unpacked! For the most part, I’ve pulled out the books that I have quantities of, but I have to tell you that there are some incredible 1 ofs…especially FRENCH still to come!

Please keep checking my Facebook Page either later this evening or most likely mid-day Friday when I will post more photos…but the next photos will be books that there are only 1 of each title and trust me when I say they are awesome!

I am currently accepting shopping appointments:
Sat, Sun, Mon & Thurs from 9 am – 1 pm
Tues. 3 pm – 8 pm

I have tried to photograph so you can see the prices but if you need a better view, please check them out on my Facebook Page where I was able to add a little bit more info on them.

Enjoy and hope to see you soon!

    Do you have any French books in the area of equity and inclusion?

    1. Hi Sue,
      Unfortunately, I’m not quite sure what books would suit your needs in English let alone in French as I have a limited knowledge of the language. You would have to come and browse through my non-fiction section to see if anything would work for you.

    Hi there
    My son is in Grade 3 reading at a Grade 2 level and the books his teachers provide are no interest to him. They ( teachers) say there are no books for boys available at this level relating to things he is interested in ( anything gross, superheros, skylanders, lego? So basically looking for leveled reading books he can use at school ?? Any help or if you have anything let me know.
    I have been to your place before to get stuff so I thought you might be able to help.
    Regards

    1. Hi Patricia,
      In my experience, until students are reading independently in French, they should be being sent home with specifically leveled books from educational publishers and these are not generally in the super-high interest topics that you mentioned but often line up with grade-level curriculum. These are specific skill-building books that also help build confidence because they are “at the right level” – the GRA level usually being marked right on the book i.e. “22” or or “26”. A good reading program should provide a combination of these as well as books that can be above or below the students level but are of topics/subject like you mentioned that actually get the student to (try to) read without necessarily understanding all or even most of the text. This is of course the same advice for learning to read in English too. I am by no means an expert but some of the French books/series my boys read from school when they were in grades 2 & 3 would include the following: Captain Underpants; Ook & Gluk; Scooby Doo; Diary of a Wimpy Kid; Garfield Albums (which are in cartoon format); Search & Find activity books; and my oldest son highly recommends “Capitaine Static; and the Garfield Albums were my youngest son’s favourite through grades 2 & 3. My last recommendation if your son’s school or teacher can’t provide stimulating resources (and often budget in the issue) that bring your son to the library to pick out what he likes and then he can bring it to school to read (I’ve often done that too)…and of course I always have a great cross-section of French leveled readers, picture books & chapter books that he may like too–will be posting lots tomorrow (later in the day).
      Good Luck!
