My students enjoyed this book!
I used this text with my French 3 Honors class this year. They loved the story and it was quite accessible for them with the help of my adding a list of vocabulary for each chapter. A French/English vocabulary at the end would add to the usefulness of this text. Students liked the simple drawings throughout that illustrated some of the vocabulary, especially the plants and animals of Porvence and topics such as farming tools. After reading the book, doing projects and assessments of several kinds, students viewed the feature film. The comprehension questions for each chapter were helpful in focusing students on the important events in each section.
