This video is the 17th in a series of videos of nursery rhymes in French. It can be found on my YouTube channel. Please do subscribe to it: I think you will find my videos useful!

There are many books in French that use this rhyme to tell fun stories: click here to discover them... and other stories involving wolves!

How do my videos differ from other videos you can watch on YouTube? They were made with YOU in mind: either as a teacher of French to little ones, or as a parent who is keen for their child(ren) to learn French.
