Welcome to Couty!

My name is Sally, and I wrote Tales from Couty after moving to France with two young children in 2007. I looked for some books to help them learn French, and when I couldn't find what I wanted, decided to write them myself!

 

As more and more animals arrived on our little farm, I picked up my camera and watched them as they went about their day.

 

Tales from Couty are the result: six stories told by real animals on a real farm introducing the French that you’ll need in real life. Each book has a theme, with loads of vocabulary, useful phrases and a quiz page. I hope you like them!

You can click on any of the book covers to find out more, and listen to the story in French (read by my bilingual daughters!). They are perfect to read with toddlers, but also for independent readers up to the age of about 8.

I am a translator and before that spent a number of years teaching English to the French and French to the English. I love the French language, and I'm hoping that the animals might just inspire a few children to feel the same way...
