Product Description

From Booklist

In addition to this work, authors Corbeil and Archambault have worked together on I^ The Firefly Visual Dictionary (Firefly Books, 2002) and I^ The Firefly Junior Visual Dictionary Using the same basic arrangement but in a larger and simpler format, the I^ My First versions attempt to capture another (younger) segment of the market

There are 36 themes--among them "Clothing," "Colors and Shapes," "Dinosaurs," "Space," and "Sports"--selected to appeal to primary-age children. Each theme has a double-page spread of small to medium-sized individual illustrations of items allied to the theme. The other 1,300 illustrations are large and in full color and are accompanied by the English word in boldface letters with the word in the other language underneath. The typeface is large and uncluttered and easy to see, although there are no pronunciation guides and no other explanatory text. Separate English and French indexes complete the book.

Public libraries with a large primary-grade audience and school libraries with bilingual programs will find this to be an attractive and useful additions. And at this price, one may want to consider purchasing additional copies to circulate. Dona Helmer

Review

An excellent beginner's dictionary.... The illustrations are clear and include things most young children would see every day. The vocabulary if up-to-date.... A beautiful hardcover book which will undoubtedly inspire elementary students to improve their vocabulary in their second language. (Ann Ketcheson Resource Links 2007-04-00)

Attractive and useful additions. And at this price, one may want to consider purchasing additional copies to circulate. (Dona Helmer Booklist 2007-03-01)

I bought this book for my friend's daughter and found it great as she is only beginning french and she can see the picture as well as the names of objects.

It's really good for kids, with big pictures and simple words.
Not so nice for adults. If you need something more complete and elaborate, see the The Firefly French/English Visual Dictionary.
