Tranquility and tradition: les "Paudeau" sailboats

Good old-fashioned fun for children, traveling or not, at the bassin du Jardin du Luxembourg. The famous model sailboats, hand-crafted by the late Pierre Paudeau beginning in 1927, have become collectors' items. Parents rent the toy boats at a concession stand for their children to sail in the basin.
un voilier:  a sailboat
Bienvenue à bord:  Welcome  on board
une maquette:  a model

For young and old alike...
We would like to recommend an enchanting, illustrated children's story, which is available in French, Le Lapin et le Roi Grenouille, or in English, The Rabbit and King Frog. Both are sold worldwide on Amazon. Click on the titles to take a peek!
