About the book...

The story is set in Paris in a girls' boarding school. There are twelve little girls under the care of Miss Clavel, a nun. In rhyming words, we learn about the daily lives of the twelve little girls. The smallest one is Madeline.

One night trouble strikes in the middle of the night. Miss Clavel sends for the doctor, and Madeline ends up with her appendix removed. The other little girls miss her and envy her time in the hospital and the gifts given to her by Papa.

The cute rhyming story makes Madeline a good book to read aloud to even young children. And the unique illustrations remind me of an impressionist painting.

Language arts-learn about poetry and rhyme...

Social studies/cultures- learn about Paris...

Science- learn about the human body...

Hands-on/crafts...
