Book Review Clovis Crawfish and His Friends and Clovis Crawfish and the Petit Papillion

Friday, November 6, 2009

Ok these are a couple more book which I checked out from the library for the Read-A-Thon but these are different because I didn't actually get around to reading these during the actual Read-A-Thon.

Clovis Crawfish and Petit Papillon follows Clovis (who I am guessing you know is a crawfish) as he watches a catepillar turn into a butterfly. At first he is worried because his dear friend, Bertile the butterfly's baby doesn't look like her but with patience he sees that the baby is just as beautiful as his Mother.

Clovis Crawfish and His Friends has a bit more adventure in the Louisiana bayou as Clovis Crawfish tries to prevent M'sieu Blue Jay from making a meal out of his friend Gaston Grasshopper.

I didn't love these books and neither did my son. Their are a lot of cajun (which is kind of French) words mixed in through the book which makes it pretty hard to read for someone who is neither cajun or a French speaker so I could never get a good flow going having to pause on every page to figure out the pronunciation of a word. I think for someone who either speaks French or has a child who loves these books and so reads them over and over they would be great but for me they just didn't stick.
