Crêpes by Suzette is available as a paperback book from my Book Shop and online booksellers, and as an interactive App
Take your children on a trip to Paris: meet Suzette, the crêpe maker, and her artistic customers in this fun, educational, interactive picture-book app.
As Suzette sells her delicacies over the course of a day, you will be treated to the sights and sounds of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, from Nôtre-Dame to the Eiffel Tower. Suzette's customers along the way are inspired by works of art, such as da Vinci's Mona Lisa and Degas's Little Dancer. You will learn to speak key French words and phrases—with a perfect accent, bien sûr! You can also listen to the narration in five additional languages: French, Spanish, Italian, German, and Japanese. And at the end of the day, a crêpe recipe and DIY cooking lesson await you! As delicious as Suzette's crêpes, this book app will captivate children—and parents— who will want to make the trip to Paris themselves. Bon voyage!
Immerse yourselves in French culture, with language, food, music and art:
- Crêpe recipe and video cooking demos
- Interactive Paris map, with fun extras
- Videos of Paris and pictures of its landmark...and lots more!
What the critics said about the book:
"Crêpes by Suzette speaks to a child's heart, or stomach, since its subject is the eternal one of eating pancakes....The book delights." Adam Gopnik from The New York Times
"Oh la la! A sweet treat to travel the streets of Paris alongside Suzette...in snazzy picture-book style." Publisher's Weekly, starred review
"Francophiles will delight in Wellington's Paris, shown as a beautiful city filled with historic buildings, gardens, and happy people eating Suzette's crepes as she sells them from her pushcart in parks and squares and on wide boulevards. Readers will enjoy this original and appealing concept book that mixes art appreciation with a travelogue." School Library Journal
This little gem has myriad uses from a simple story to enjoy, to art history class, and units on French culture." Children's Literature
