Shop a fancy France-y store. Eat a pretty petit four. Discover! Sightsee! Explore! On this fun and friendly tour, everybody says “Bonjour!” Whether at a soccer stadium (“players scoring”), a crêpe stand (“batter pouring”), or strolling the Champs d’ Elysee (where folks “bonjour” in every store), a little girl and her family are welcomed everywhere with the signature French greeting. Jump into these pages and enjoy the trip! Through lilting words and lively images, Everybody Bonjours welcomes young reader-travelers to a Paris that isn’t just for artists, grown-ups, and dreamers– it’s for kids!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun A fun approach to language and voyages. The rhythm throughout is appealing, as are the illustrations. I have a bit of a problem with the mispronunciation of a French greeting, but not enough to quibble about.

Editorial Reviews

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, March 24, 2008:
"Kids may well demand to be taken to the nearest passport office after finishing this light-as-a-soufflé salute to the City of Lights."

Starred Review, Booklist, August 1, 2008:
“The brief rhymes are tightly rendered but cleverly worded, and they work perfectly in tandem with the art.”
