How Do You Say Cluck Cluck in French?

poulette crevette french book

Here in France, we have chickens and cows next door. I was teaching Baby June how to say moo and bawk, when I realized, the French will have different animal sounds they teach their children. I love the whole idea! Makes me think of David Sedaris and his funny essay where he discusses how different countries make the rooster sound — like cocorico and kikiriki — instead of the English cockadoodledoo.

If you’re interested in exposing young children to new languages, animal sounds would be a fun way to start. My readers recommended some French animal sounds books: Cher Zoo. Le Livre des Bruits. And Poulette Crevette. I can’t wait to check them out.
