In Beaucoup de bonbons, the sixth Luc and Sophie book, Luc and his friends see that Sophie and Nadine have some sweets. They ask the girls how many they have. The girls count them – but will they share them with the boys?
The story is told via speech bubbles and is a fabulous way of introducing counting to 20.
As with all Luc et Sophie stories, there’s a twist at the end. Barbara Scanes, the author, says that she used her own children (who are now in their 20s!) as role models when thinking of what Luc et Sophie would do.
