Use French stories to teach colours

In Un bonbon rouge, the seventh Luc and Sophie book, Luc and his friends would like to have some of the girls’ sweets. Sophie suggests playing a game. Can the boys work out which colour sweet is missing? Will the boys get some sweets?

The story is told via speech bubbles and is a fabulous way of introducing colours to children in a humorous way.


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.

The book can be bought on it’s own, as part of the Year 3/4 Starter Pack or in a class set with all 14 storybooks for Years 3/4.
