"As a multilingual preschool we believe passionately in developing bilingualism in children. Gentille Alouette provides a fun, colourful and dynamic support structure which encourages continued learning of French at home and simultaneously in our setting. The children love the stories and songs in the books and the parents are able to share in this too. I recommend Gentille Alouette as a brilliant and unique language learning tool, indispensable to any Early Years setting."

"I just wanted to let you know how much I love your new magazine! My 4 year old daughter was so thrilled to get her copy and felt very special that she had a magazine just for her. She couldn't wait to get home and do the activities. The magazine looks gorgeous and the layout is great at keeping the attention of little ones. We had lots of fun reading the stories together and learning about farms. As I don't speak very much French I found the supporting videos on the website so helpful to ensure I was pronouncing the words correctly for her. The bi-lingual nature of the magazine means that she naturally starts to pick up some French words and she is excited to learn more. We can't wait for the next edition!"
