Cover of my latest book

Some of My Books Are Ready!

June 24, 2020

Here’s the link to four of the five French books I worked over the past year for teens with intellectual disabilities (just click on the book covers to access the stories)

Although these books are meant to be fun, each has a different aim.

“Disparition à l’école secondaire La Tulipe” focuses on helping students learn to navigate and recognize the different areas of a school. As it’s a mystery, they also get to look for and connect the clues.

“Une journée de rêve” focuses on leisure activities, which in this case includes performing and sports. Readers will have a look behind the scenes of a TV set and a hockey team.

“Mon Mag” is all about personal care and well-being. It takes the form of a teen magazine and contains all sorts of hands-on activities such as cooking, fashion, hairstyling, fitness, crafts as well as tips, a quiz, and even jokes!

“La fête du quartier des Érables” will help readers locate things on a map while learning about key places within their communities.

I’ll let you know when the fifth one is available. 🙂
