"ABRIR UK is very proud to support J.N. PAQUET's bilingual series 'The Book of the Animals'. We see in the series another means for the children to have both their languages recognized and valued. Both parents can read the same stories with the children and thus enjoy the great experience of participating in their children's literacy development. Reading together and being able to speak their own languages with their children is also a wonderful opportunity to strengthen parents-chidren's emotional links."
Kensington Central Library
J.N. PAQUET's last public storytelling took place last Thursday, at Kensington Central Library, London. The children's author is not going to attend any more public events for the next 5 years, at least, so that he can focus on writing and illustrating many new children's books for his little readers.
North Kensington Library
Lovely storytelling event at North Kensington Library, London. It was a great occasion for the children to discover J.N. PAQUET's newest children's book "Silly Santa!" and give him some precious feedback...
