Gemma needs our book help! Oh I LOVE books with kids, especially with a language barrier being an issue.
There was a time when we moved from Montreal to Toronto, and I had a babysitter who only spoke English and I only spoke French. I was about 4 or 5 years old and I remember how difficult it was for us to communicate. I especially remember one time when I was trying to tell her to cut the fat off my meat because I didn’t like fat. I would say “No gras”, and she’d ask… what is “gras”? We had a giggle over that one, when it was put on the table and I was finally able to point to it.
