Hundreds of stories are available on topics as varied as animals of the wood, Rebel Girls, pirates, but also meditation in music and tales to fall asleep smoothly. Lunii editions offer stories in 8 languages: French, English, Italian, Spanish, German, Dutch and Russian. The perfect opportunity to start a new language in a fun way and enrich their vocabulary.
2. The drawing giant posters – Omy
During lockdown, creativity seems to be the new trend. We therefore offer you a drawing activity to share with your children thanks: Omy’s giant posters. Beyond creativity, this activity will immerse your children in the world of museums, oceans, pirates, or discover new cities such as Berlin, Madrid, Paris, Marseille and Brussels… After long hours of fun, you can proudly frame and hang up your masterpiece in your child’s room, in the hallway or last option in the toilet!!

3. Cooking Class Global Feast – 44 recipes that celebrate the World’s cultures
Now let’s head towards the kitchen for a sensory exploration with the book Cooking Class Global Feast.

Thanks to simple instructions and an accessible vocabulary, your children will be able to bake great desserts, but also cook first courses and main dishes to the delight of the whole family! So what are you going to achieve first? French crepes, Chinese coconut pearls or a Greek moussaka?
