The majority of the text in the story - the narration - is English, with simple French words and phrases introduced in the short, simple dialogue, making it very accessible for children with no previous knowledge of French. The story helps children to learn and practise names of animals, foods and key phrases in French, such as greetings and saying yes, no, please and thank you.
