Children's Picture Books: Freebies


I have just received this French edition of Giddy the Great (we always get sent a copy of any foreign editions). This one is rather a cute format: a mini size, at just 18 x 16 cm!


I used to collect my foreign editions: there's something rather fun about all those different languages surrounding my pictures. But then I realised it was a waste: books are for reading! So now I give them away instead. It's amazing - I can always find a good home for even the most obscure ones (even Icelandic once...).


Since this is French I know I'll have no trouble, but I also have this Afrikaans edition of An Itch to Scratch (sorry to those I told that it was in Dutch!):

In the past I've used Freecycle to find takers, but I thought it might be fun to try offering them here. So, if you would like either, and are happy to send an SAE, leave me a comment (with an email address).

I would be interested in sending it to my french teacher from high school who just had a baby a few weeks ago. It would be a really cool present... especially if you signed it!

Hi Lynne - that little Giddy book looks great...
That's the South African Itch to Scratch (Afrikaans)though - very similar to Dutch. There is a Dutch one though isn't there - called something like Wie Helpt Grotte Gorilla.

I think since Buskitten was first in and has been such a solid follower from the word go, I'm going to let her have Cornilion - sorry Candace!

So, any Afrikaans speakers out there..?
