Children learning to read in French will love the Gafi Raconte series. These fun, enchanting adventure stories feature Gafi the friendly ghost and his friends; each story is told in words and pictures to aid comprehension .
In Bon Anniversaire, Gafi, it's Gafi the ghost's 800th birthday and the children are preparing a surprise for him.
This title is ideal for children who are just starting to read French. The text is fairly simple and new words are explained in a (monolingual French) glossary at the back. At the back of the book, there are a few activity pages to extend the learning.
Bon Anniversaire, Gafi is intended for native French speakers who are learning to read. It would suit a child aged 5+ if they were fluent in French. Otherwise, this would be excellent reading material for advanced Key Stage 2 and even for Key Stage 3 students who are learning to read their first French books.
