Le Coin Lecture/ Reading Corner

Since 1939, FAAFC is committed to improving the lives of deprived children, both in the US and France. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, many of our partners have moved to online virtual activities. We wanted to encourage  students and families in the French-American and international community who are also at home at this time to help the young children of the grantees that we support by building a virtual book library in French and English books. As we find ourselves confined to our homes, this initiative is an opportunity to capture the students’ creativity and enthusiasm to actively participate and make a difference in this time of crisis. The books will provide isolated children either in hospital or foster care homes a welcome educational tool. Children helping Children.

This page will be updated on a regular basis as books will be gradually uploaded. Visit us often!
