Come learn French and join Gracie as she searches for new friends in this based-on-a-true-story, bilingual adventure in the Blue Ridge Mountains! Featuring 20+ watercolor illustrations. Bonus: Look-and-Find of Ashe County, NC foliage! For ages 1 to 4, with help from an adult, and ages 5+ with basic reading skills.
This book was created with the intention of assisting monolingual adults in helping children become bilingual. Inside the book, the English is included so that adults will be able to follow along with the story.
 

This book is accompanied by several free audio versions: one has the foreign language with English, and another, just the foreign language (for a more immersive experience). Make sure to download your free audio below!

“I hope to expose children early on to a new language to assist their potential for fluency as they are further exposed. I hope you enjoy this book and I hope it will help your children on the road to fluency in a second, third, or even fourth language!” -Aunt Katie

Editorial Reviews:

“Kids will not only enjoy the story of Gracie, a dog in search of something very precious, they will enjoy learning and practicing a second language at the same time. It’s a fun way to help develop your child’s potential for foreign language fluency. And while this book is primarily written for children, monolingual adult readers will appreciate the opportunity to put together words and short phrases in a language that may not be familiar to them. Each time you read the book together, you’ll both be building language skills!”

– Tamara S. Randolph, Carolina Mountain Life Magazine

“I think that ‘Gracie: A Bilingual Adventure in the Blue Ridge Mountains’ is a wonderful way to introduce young children to different languages. I loved the audio feature. It reminded me of my record player and books that I had as a child. My daughter loved all three of the books. She had fun listening to all three of the audio versions of the book. By listening to the audio versions, she was able to catch on to how to pronounce almost all the words for each of the languages on her own. The illustrations are charming and will draw in young children. You and your children can go to the website found in the heading and read all about the real Gracie. I would recommend this book to parents and educators looking for a way to introduce a foreign language to their young child.”

– Jennifer Ladewig, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine

  1. Priscilla Yoder (verified owner)

    The Gracie books are engaging, well-written, and a fun way to learn another language. They are beautifully illustrated; I especially like the little worm on every page! By what means will he be travelling next?
