ABC Melody is an upcoming French publishing house of educational books worth paying attention to. I particularly like their serie Come to My City.
They care about introducing children to foreign languages and world cultures. Exactly right on that.
There’s Lily from NY City, Navani from Delhi, Paolo from Roma and several more cute characters who explain what is everyday life in their respective big cities. The colourful illustrations and the lively texts create a fun atmosphere, easily accessible to young children. For now, the texts & audio are only in French but let’s hope they’ll soon translate in English.
