Use French stories to teach months of the year

In Quelle est la date de ton anniversaire?, the twelfth Luc and Sophie book, Sophie, Nadine and Emilie are looking at Sophie’s birthday list. When do all the dolls have their birthdays? Is there a birthday for every month?

The story is told via speech bubbles and is a fabulous way of introducing the months of the year as well as saying when one’s birthday is.


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.
