Let's Have Fun in Paris!
Marielle is a mouse with moxie! She may be small but her ideas are big. Marielle is a fashion designer in Paris and when she is given a commission to create nine fancy dresses, she travels around the city for inspiration. But later, when, a big wind scatters her unique creations, Marielle must overcome her fear of heights to fly high above Paris on the back of her pigeon-friend Pierre, to find them. Let's fly to Paris--and then hover above the city with Marielle, looking for her lost dresses and exploring this most gorgeous city.
This program’s activities touch on psychology, geography, vocabulary development and encourage a child's imagination, artistic creativity and observation.
