We created this website to make it easy for Académie Lafayette families to get books and magazines in French. Here are a few ways you can get some:
- We are stocking a small inventory of books from a French publisher, Lire C’est Partir. We buy the books in bulk from them, and get them shipped to Kansas City. You can now purchase the books directly from this site. We’ll send you an email when they’re ready, and you can pick up your order at school on the Oak campus.
- You can subscribe to a French book club, and receive a book per month during the school year (8 per year). There are 8 different levels, depending on your kid’s grade and reading ability. We negotiated a bulk deal with the French publisher of Ecole des Max to get you the best deal possible. Books are delivered to the Oak campus. We’ll send you an email when they arrive and are ready for pick up.
- For parents who are seeking a larger selection of books, we are linking to a US distributor of French books, Lectures de France. They offer a loyalty program, and will also offer free books to the school based on purchases from AL parents. For more info, check here
This program is supervised by Mme Jessica Wallace and managed with the help of parent volunteers. For any questions, please email Mme Wallace at firstname.lastname@example.org.
