Ils parlent de nous:

"Lovely store! We'll be back!"




 "It was a pleasure to meet you and receive such great service! We'll definitely shop there again soon!"


"Wonderful place to exchange children's books written in French"


 "So happy to discover a French language book store in Kensington! It's unusual, and the selection of books is very well chosen and perfect for my kids! What a wonderful addition to the neighborhood." 


"We had a fantastic experience working with Bonjour Mama on our spring book fair. Jennifer was knowledgeable, organized and above all, listened to what we wanted to offer at our event. She absolutely went above and beyond with the materials she brought and our families were thrilled! We are looking forward to partnering with Bonjour Mama again!"


"Such a lovingly-created space with a great selection of books, etc. I wish you much success in your business!"


"Our elementary school is a partial immersion school French/Spanish and we had a wonderful experience with Bonjour Mama at our first French book fair.  Bonjour Mama was on time, set up a beautiful fair and managed their own payment system.  They had a great selection of books and also took our teacher and media center requests.  I would highly recommend Bonjour Mama for your French book fair needs."
