  • Take your child on an emotional journey: Your Personalised Book about France

    This personalised French children's book is a fantastic storybook for French expats, for French families raising children abroad, or at least one French expat parent in a multi-cultural family living in a foreign country.

    Kids are impacted by their home-environment, which consists of various cultural and social identities. Understanding your roots and having a sense of belonging is challenging for them, no matter of their age. The love for your French cultural heritage is not something that they inherit when they are born; it has to be nurtured from an early age.

  • Connect deeper with the kids about your French roots: your book on France.

    If you are French expats raising your kids abroad or grandparent with the little ones living outside of France, it can be daunting to share or start a discussion about your roots and heritage with your children. You are not alone! 

    You want to make sure that your child gets to know who they are and to whom and what they belong. You want them to experience and enjoy French traditions. You want to share all those beautiful traditional French music or join in the steps of a French traditional dance which bring back so many fond memories to you. Are you struggling to find modern and exciting French children’s stories that do that? Do you struggle to find relevant kids' books to read together and enjoy with your children?

    This one-of-a-kind, personalised French children’s book gives you a great starting point in talking about what does France mean to you, what memories and feelings it triggers in you and why. This book about France will push the kids gently into discovering even more themes once the reading is finished. For example, cooking typical french food together, learning how to master steps for a French traditional dance or organising a children’s party for your expatriate kid’s roots. This is France for kids, where they share the many learnings and personal stories with friends and the community around their home. And why not, also share these unique details with your partner, if he or she is not French.

    France for kids in a fun and engaging way
  • Are grandma and grandpa from France? Create a unique gift which can be shared across borders with the grandchildren

    Being a grandma or grandpa living in France while your grandchildren are miles away or maybe even oceans away cannot be easy. What is important to understand is that kids can feel confused concerning who they are, and we need to understand that and empathise with those feelings. This can happen, for example, when your grandchild is positively looking forward to travelling to get to see you, the grandparents and other family relatives in France. In the same time, they experience sorrow to leave a familiar place which is their current home and the familiar faces of neighbours and friends they know. This book about France can make for a remarkable gift for grandchildren who live far away. Your grandchildren also recognise the book as “my world book” and attach themselves naturally and profoundly to France, the French traditions and their French roots.

    And when the distance is too big for frequent travels, then this personalised French children’s book keeps the little ones connected and curious to engage with you on a deeper level.

  • Give your French kids strong roots and wings

    Once born, kids need adults and a safe and nurturing environment. As they develop from babies into toddlers, their sense of belonging and their roots are being built. It is such an essential part of their lives, which comes to support them later if done correctly. For multi-cultural families or French expat families living abroad with their kids, constructing the roots and understanding the complexity of the foundation of two or more cultures is essential to be handled carefully. 

    We encourage French expats to support this process, to open discussions, to encourage questions, to share with their little ones. In the end, we all hope for the best for them: a strong identity, a sense of belonging, a sense of exploration and openness to others and a fearlessness, driven by passion and joy.

  • Our family is not a traditional one. Is this kids' book about France for us?

    What if you are a single parent or a divorced parent with French roots, raising your children in a foreign country? Or a rainbow family, or a foster family? Let’s get something clear from the start, this is your situation, and you shouldn’t feel guilty or ashamed by it. Even more important, your children should feel comfortable being in this environment. CUKIBO personalised French children’s picture books allow you to select and structure the adults in the books as you see fit. We make it easy and natural, as per your situation, to read a modern French children’s book.
