Today marks the beginning of Paris en Juillet, and I have not done nearly enough to plan my month. Here's what I've got:
Le Voyage de Babar. I actually cheated and already read this one with the kids the other day. If they're interested, we'll do it again, and I might even comment on it. It is hilarious.
A set of beautiful, old books in French. Some Baudelaire, Flaubert, Stendhal, a collection of short stories by various authors. Even though I rarely read in French, I will almost always buy books in French whenever I find them at estate sales. Waiting for this moment, I suppose.
The Paris Review Interviews, which I have been pining after for some time. I'm sure they are not Parisian enough to make the cut, but I'm thinking I'm going to make it work somehow. And, bien sur, Le Petit Prince. My sister apparently had to translate this one back in high school (although she thankfully stopped writing the translation in after the first few pages). I'm thinking of reading it to my kids later this month. After we finish Ramona the Pest, of course.
And waiting in my Netflix Instant Queue: Le Ballon Rouge. I stumbled across this film when we first set up our account, and it struck me as familiar. So much so that I immediately wanted to see it. Perhaps we watched it in school at some point? Je ne sais pas.
