I think this is the BIGGEST one-time buy that TheBookLady.ca has ever made…over one thousand FRENCH books from a retiring Grade 2-4 French Immersion teacher who lives four hours north of the GTA and wanted to find a one-stop-buyer! 🙂
I was overwhelmed as I went through box after box, organized by authors, read-a-loud topics, interest subjects, curriculum topics and reading levels.
For example, there was a great selection of pirate-themed books because at the beginning of the school year, this teacher liked to do a fun pirate theme to engage her students which then led into a mapping unit, complete with treasure hunts.
Although I couldn’t necessarily read the titles (my French is limited), I sure could tell when I ran across a fabulous selection of books to support the Traditions and Celebrations Around the World unit and those books can be a challenge to find in English, let alone French!
I’ll be honest…I had to go through these books so fast, with my heart-a-pumping excitedly that I can’t give you many details now, and it is going to take me days and days to sort and price these, but I wanted to get the word out now that if you have a primary French Immersion class to stock, book your shopping appointment with TheBookLady.ca now! Although I am accepting appointments this coming Sunday, July 2nd, these books will NOT be available then, as I will not have time to go through, price and sort yet.
Most should be available by my Tuesday, July 4th time slot of 10 am – 1 pm (please remember to confirm your shopping appointment in advance).
Other notable finds:
- TONS of Robert Munsch, Eric Carle, Barbara Reid, Doreen Cronin, Pheobe Gilman, Audrey Penn, Nik Bland and more!
- TONS of leveled/early reading including GB+, fiction, non-fiction (Magic School Bus etc.), popular characters etc.
- TONS of popular story books (Caillou, Franklin, Little Critter, Clifford, Brady Brady etc.)
- LOTS of high interest books like Fancy Nancy, Scaredy Squirrel, Scooby Doo, Geronimo Stilton, Mercy Watson etc.
- LOTS of geography, history, books on Canada, Traditions and Celebrations Around the World, character-building and more
- TONS of Science & Nature
- LOTS of visual dictionaries and vocabulary builders
- even SOME teacher resource books!
Don’t forget, the photo just shows the new arrivals, my current FRENCH section is overflowing at the moment too…there has NEVER been a better time to shop for French books at TheBookLady.ca!
