Book signings and readings of new bilingual children's book If I Were an Octopus… / Si j’étais une pieuvre…

Hi, Brian.
Thank you so much for your support of my new book.  Please find all relevant information below...

Sarah Kathryn Thatcher’s debut children’s book, If I Were an Octopus… / Si j’étais une pieuvre…, was created to support parents with children who are learning French as a Second Language. Its fun illustrations and simple vocabulary introduce beginners to numbers and ocean animals in both languages.

As a French Immersion teacher and parent, Sarah discovered a lack of engaging and age appropriate books for her students and her own children. Sarah has received wonderful feedback from children, parents, teachers and librarians all explaining how they used the book in a creative way to facilitate language learning.

Sarah also opened The Grey Leaf Publishing House to encourage the creation of multi-lingual books for children. For more information visit:
