Madeline

  • Title: Madeline
  • Author: Ludwig Bemelmans
  • Illustrator: Ludwig Bemelmans
  • Publisher: Puffin Books
  • Publication year: 1939
  • Brief Summary: From Penguin Random House-“Nothing frightens Madeline—not tigers, not even mice.”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I did find this study guide that can be used by a teacher or librarian after reading the book. Many links I skimmed through had suggestions for using this book to teach children about the historical sites of Paris, France.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it. –Bemelmans use of bright colors, like the bright yellow for the girl’s outfits and sometimes as a wash for the entire illustration, is quite unique. The rhyming is fast paced just as with every flip of the page.
