I see London, I see France… I jest! This week’s installment of What to Read Wednesday is focused squarely on France— perfect timing as their presidential election has been center stage in world news; London will have to wait.
I’ve not yet been to France, but I have one French-obsessed daughter/pupil. Center Sister is verily enamored with all things French, stemming from a peculiar fascination with the infamous ill-fated 18th century French monarch Marie Antionette. Last year she even had a Marie Antionette-inspired backyard birthday tea party– sans guillotine.
She took it upon herself to learn basic French last year and (as kids are remarkably prone to do) has retained a great deal of it with apparent ease. Each time we visit Trader Joe’s (the mothership!) she adds a baguette and meringues or macarons to our cart with a sheepish smirk and I happily oblige. She even discovered my favorite Pandora station, the French Cooking station.
When we hosted a Mock United Nations day with fellow homeschoolers, she naturally chose to represent her beloved France.
Center Sister’s everyday literary selections tend to reflect her passion for French culture, so when France came up for this week’s installment of What to Read Wednesday, I turned to the expert! The following’s modest a sampling of her favorites:
