With many books in our collections geared towards les enfants jusqu'à trois ans and our recent creation of Book Bundles, we’re pretty big fans of early literacy here at the French Cultural Center Library! Luckily, we’re in good company, both with the members that borrow our books and the French libraries that recommend their coups de coeur!

Bibliothèques de la Ville de Paris, a group of 57 lending and 15 specialized libraries in Paris, has compiled an awesome list of 100 favorite reads for children three and under. We’re thrilled to offer a selection of these must-reads here at the library!

Make sure to also check out some favorites on Culturethèque :

We hope this list and books like those featured will spark your curiosity! Both in the library and through Culturethèque, we’re excited to offer options for all ages, all reading levels, and all interests. We’d love to help you discover a new favorite!

Ingrid began her passion for French through the immersion program in Milton, MA, and has followed it around France and the world. She took a break from this first love to pursue a B.A. in English with a minor in Irish Studies at Boston College and a Masters of Library and Information Sciences at Simmons College. She is thrilled to meld her excitement for libraries and French language and culture in her position at the Center!
