Petite Pauline kit

This play carries a good message, especially for the primary student who may often feel small at times. In this story, the youngest daughter of the family who, throughout the play is not appreciated, is the one who saves the day!

Both Core French and Immersion teachers have been thrilled with Histoires en action ! pour les tout petits 1A, 2A and 3A, the AIM approach for young beginners. Now, Petite Pauline, the fourth-level kit, is available! This kit features a wonderful new original play by Wendy Maxwell. This tale points out that special things often come in small packages. Great new songs and raps.


Enhance your kit with the following extras:
JAMAIS- Reader
A darling family pet loves his owner, Rachelle, and would do anything to protect her, or at least in its mind he would. This comical tale entertains but tugs at the heart with its story about belief in oneself.
