Brandon Brown dit la vérité

Rather than get caught in the act of disobeying his mother, Brandon decides to lie about his dishonest actions. He quickly discovers that not telling the truth can create big problems and a lot of stress! Will he win in the end, or will he decide that honesty is the best policy?

The exceptionally low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) make this an ideal read for very beginning French students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and French), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire French without even realizing it! Happy reading!

The novel has some very basic topics grounded in high-frequency vocabulary that would fit any level-one curriculum:

Families & communities

  • Family relationships (sibling & parents)
  • Parenting strategies Science & Technology
  • Use of technology for leisure
  • Technology and children Personal identities
  • Growing up and developing independence
  • Honesty and integrity
  • Difficult choices
  • Likes and dislikes
