Celebrate Bastille Day with Daisy the Curly Cat
How do you like my chapeau? That’s French for “hat.” You might wonder why I’m wearing a French beret, and why my hat is so BIG. Today is Bastille Day, a special day to celebrate everything French, which is why I’m wearing this jaunty beret. My hat is so big on account of my head is tiny.
Since this is a day to celebrate everything French, let’s learn some important French words!
Cat = chat
Dog = chien
Biscuit = petit gâteau sec
Pretty = jolie
Please = s’il vous plaît (this word is optional)
Now if we ever go to France (and I believe I should since I already have the hat), we can communicate our needs. Repeat after me: “Donner la jolie chat un petit gâteau sec, s’il vous plaît.” I am pretty sure that means “gimme a treat!” But I could be wrong.
Whew, that’s a mouthful! French is hard to learn, because you have to rrrrrrroll the letter rrrrrrrrrrr inside your mouth. I’ll just practice for a while. Happy Bastille Day, and au revoir!
