Monsieur Sageutte and His Baguette by Frank Asch is one of our new favorites this year. Monsieur Sageutte loves bread with his soup, but alas, there is no bread is his house. He sets out to buy a baguette, and on the way home his baguette helps him solve a number of hilarious problems.
This is a great book for practicing your French accent, and my children have been requesting soup and bread for dinner at an alarming rate!
Enjoy the lovely illustrations and charming story, then bring your kids into the kitchen to make soup and bread. In the words of Monsieur Saguette, "my favorite!"
