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 Sur le Tour de France, Gafi and his friends attend the Tour de France. Unfortunately, their favorite rider is losing! They must help him to regain his confidence.
This title is ideal for children who are confident at reading French alone. The text is more complex but 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.
Gafi Raconte: Sur le Tour de France is intended for native French speakers who are just about able to read in French alone. It would suit a child aged 6+ 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.
