GOOD POINTS: The Big Book of French Words by Usborne Books is a fun and very educational reference book for school-age children who are starting to learn the French language.

The book is arranged around specific themes that helps make learning French vocabulary simple, yet really enjoyable, with engaging depictions of activities and everyday objects. The themes covered include the house and garden, individual rooms within the house, the town, types of transport, school, sports and activities, the family tree, occupations, body and health, clothing, at the shops, at the cafe, the farm, the zoo, seasons and weather, numbers and days, the world, locations, history, colours and materials, descriptions, and finally actions. There is also a word list is included in the back of the book for quickly translating basic words from French to English.

The book is also supported on the Usborne website with an online pronunciation guide so that the trickier words can be learnt accurately.

The combination of the simple to follow themes, well designed and beautifully illustrated pages really does make the book an ideal learning aid for any child starting out with French (or for that matter any adult that wants to help them!). Covering all aspects of work and play, children can quickly learn vocabulary in a fun fashion so that they can quickly develop enough vocabulary to support their studies.

BAD POINTS: None really, although the book obviously doesn't cover sentence construction etc.
