Remy Isn't Like the Rest
Normal capybaras swim well, but Remy is the only one in French Guiana who can’t—and things don’t look good for him away from the water! This story, set in a Département d’Outre-mer, also includes science and social studies cross-curricular content: students learn about three geographic regions of French Guiana, the Amazon Rainforest, South American animals, the water cycle, and deforestation. The story is supplemented with English-French nonfiction readings, and the entire text contains just 70 unique vocabulary words and lots of cognates.
