La Passion du Papier.... My New Guilty Pleasure

As if I needed another excuse to spend money on building my bilingual resource mountain!!!

Just over a week or so ago, I stumbled upon La Passion du Papier and there's been no turning back. They stock bilingual books in several language pairs and also some great wall friezes.... I particularly like the weather frieze.

Originally, I had steered away from bilingual texts for reasons I can no longer recall. However, having received my first shipment, I can honestly say that it's a fantastic way to allow for both Maman and Papa to read comfortably to Poppette without the need for on the hoof translation one way or the other.

Now I'm just counting down the days until our weather wall frieze arrives. Poppette really seems to love learning about the weather and can already point out the sun and the snow so i'm looking forward to adding to this knowledge with such a beautifully illustrated tool.


  1. What a nice resource. I wish they had a German frieze! (a new word for me!!) They look so beautiful!

    1. Hi Kate, I'm sorry we don't have the friezes in German! We are however working on increasing our stocks in French, German and Dutch so hopefully we may have resources of interest in the near future...

  2. I really admire what you are doing for Poppette. It's such a huge bonus for children to be bilingual if they are given the opportunity - it still never ceases to amaze how 'little ones' can flick between languages with such ease.

    I'm thrilled that you like our resources and hope that you and Poppette enjoy the weather frieze - it should be with you in the next day of so if it's not arrived already.

    We are adding new products to the site constantly so I'll keep you posted.

    Keep up the hard work - every minute will have been worth it when you hear Poppette further down the line chatting away in both languages!
