    This is very cute. I like all of the thought that has been put into the illustrations (shown in the reference in the back). I wish there was a bit more to the actual story.

    Everybody in Paris says Bonjour! I thought this would be a fun book to pair with Fancy Nancy for a storytime (since Nancy thinks speaking French is fancy!)

Response to Two Professional Reviews: Publishers Weekly and Booklist say that “Everybody Bonjours” is a beautiful book who will nudge any child to want to get on a place and explore the world around them. The rhymes are brief, but clever… the story and the art go perfectly together. Framework: Like(s): I loved the illustrations I think it was the best part of the book, they took up the whole page and went along with the story beautifully. It made French look lovely. Dislike(s): The structure of the story could have made a little bit more sense, but still showed the linguistics in France wonderfully. Patterns(s): France excursions, Saying bonjour to everyone she meets Puzzle(s): How to navigate new places Consideration of Instructional Application (3-4 sentences in your own words): Exploring how to say hello in each of the places we were born in, where how you traveled? What other languages do you know how to say hello?

    A rhyming book about all the various places around Paris where people say "Bonjour!" I used this one for a French-themed outreach storytime at the local art museum. A short, sweet book for the youngest audience members with colorful illustrations that kept their attention. Would work well for a preschool storytime. Bonus: the word "bonjour" is repeated so often, kids are sure to remember it by the end of the book. A rhyming book about all the various places around Paris where people say "Bonjour!"

    In reality, there's no significant reason to give this book 4 stars. It was really, really simple, and the illustrations weren't particularly remarkable. But perhaps because it's french, or maybe because of its simplicity, or perhaps just because it's a children's book, I have it 4 stars anyways.

    A cute book about a child who flies to Paris and learns that everybody says "Bonjour". For storytime you can have the kids pretend to get into their airplane seats, out on their seatbelts and fly! At the end, she flies back home, where everyone says "Hello".

    I love this book for all of its whimsical illustrations of beloved Paris sights. The short phrases on each page is great for Elliot’s short attention. Looking forward to reading this more as he grows as o share favorite memories of my visits to Paris!

    An introduction into french vocabulary. The inside covers have a simplifies map of Paris and each page references to one of the landmarks depicted.

    I picked this up, I just couldn't resist the read. The illustrations were delightful but not much of a storyline. I can't imagine a school-age kiddo loving it but the adult reader will.

    I picked this up for Jms at the library today as, before the twins were born, he and I had been putting some effort into speaking in French. Recently, the word "bonjour" has been showing up in a song he's learned in pre-K, so I thought, why not see if I can ease him back into it? And then I remembered what recently happened in Paris, and we read the book together, and, well. He liked the book just fine.

And then I remembered what recently happened in Paris, and we read the book together, and, well. He liked the book just fine. I was far more affected, especially by the page showing the football game in the Stade de France. Emotions and current events aside, this is a gorgeously illustrated story of a little girl and her family's visit to Paris. The text is simple, serving primarily to carry the reader from site to glorious site of a child-friendly city. It's the kind of book you give to the little kid who loves daydreaming about faraway places or, even more fortunately, might get to visit Paris in the near future. There's also a terrific guide to points of interest, but the real highlight is the beautiful art. Sarah McMenemy has done an amazing job, and you can tell that both she and Leslie Kimmelman have a real affection for their subject.

I write reviews of children's books with the goal of helping teachers discover great new books to use in their classrooms and to pass along to their students. I loved this one.

    When I first picked up this book, I thought it was quite old due to the style of the illustrations. However, it's a recent publication (2008) and includes even the Centre Pompidou and references le Stade de France. Consequently, I'm surprised the creperie illustration has a menu listing the prices of crepes in francs. I suppose they are getting at that nostaglic view of Paris that seems so endearing.

In terms of using this book with children -- particularly those who may be travelling internationally soon -- I'd appreciate a slightly more honest view of the city in terms of contemporary culture. Still a nice introduction to some of the Parisian monuments and hints of the different arrondissements.

    I dunno. I'm a Francophile, but somehow this just didn't give me the FEEL of Paris, or for that matter of the word "bonjours". Perhaps it's because the word is so seldom used that way any more than we talk about "hellos". Try reading this with the word "hellos" instead of "bonjours" and see if you see what I mean. Peut-etre, if it has been "Everybody SAYS bonjour", I would have liked it better. Picky of me, but there it is. Meanwhile I'd stick with "Madeline" to get the full flavor of Paris... I dunno.

    A little girl travels through Paris and explains how, in the city, everybody bonjours! In stores and in the streets, at soccer games and guided tours. The illustrations are ver bright and colorful and fun. But the grammar kills me. No one "bonjours," just like no one in America "hellos."

    My daughter is CRAZY about this book. It is the only book she will allow me to read her before bed. We have to read it three times. I try to pick up other books (old faves like Goodnight Moon and Each Peach Pear Plum) but she pushes them away until I pick this one up. I have to admit - I love it, too. The illustrations are so beautiful, and the words are simple but fun. I wish the author/illustrator had other books like this one to add to our collection!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The title is the story. Basically, the text is about how people say, "Bonjour!" in cafes and shops and parks, etc. And, when you arrive back home in America, everyone says '"Hello!" That's it, that's the entire story. Booooooring! The only thing that saved this from a one star rating is the illustrations feature some famous French landmarks in a colorful setting. The title is the story.

    I was looking for a younger story for a French Favorites story time and this was perfect. Worked well in story time for my young attendees too. We waved "hello" every time we "Bonjoured." I'm rounding this up to 4. One little girl was so cute saying "Bonjour." Her French nanny checked the book out.

    Follows a little girl and her family on a trip to Paris. The simple text is complemented by the illustrations, giving a little peak into French life. There is more detailed information on all the locations, at the back of the book.

    Why are there so many books about the sights of Paris? Well, besides the obvious, that we keeping picking them up to read. I want there to be more books like this for other cities.

    This was a good book. It will teach students a different way of how people in another country say hello. The pictures in the books are wonderful because they look like they are been painted with water paints. This is a good book to show culture.

    I know Paris gets a little too much love. It would be nice to read more kids lit depicting other countries. But I gotta admit. I love this book with the petit fours and the crepes and the coffee sipping. It's a bit dreamy . . . and a good break from Madeline (though Bemelmans does it best!)

    My five-year-old son picked out this book from the library last week. This isn't a bad book; it's just not especially a good book. Some of the illustrations are charming, but they, and the text, fail to capture the feel of Paris for me. My five-year-old son picked out this book from the library last week.
