Phonics-based "first reader" books in French?
September 16, 2013 8:23 PM Subscribe
I have a child starting grade 1 french immersion, and am looking for some (very) early reading books in French. Said progeny responded astonishingly well last year to a phonics-based early literacy series in English by Usborne (this one
). Can anyone recommend an equivalent in French? Is phonics even a thing in French?

Some great extant AskMe threads, here
, but the recommendations skewed a little more advanced -- and not specifically Phonics-ish. Much prefer books that are actually fun, of course, rather than medicinal - but really looking for a very basic approach. Found a couple of phonics manuals in French, but nothing quite comparable to that Usborne series.
