Ovo by Cirque du Soleil

Whether your child loves to act, dance or listen to stories all day, here are some great resources (mostly in French) to nurture his or her creative spirit at home!

Check out Part 1 of our Online Resources for Kids round-up. 

If your kid is dreaming of Broadway...

Nothing's better than a good circus show, and you can now access all the Cirque du Soleil shows online for free! In addition to its traditional performances, the company is also providing special live shows, web series, virtual realities, and special programs for kids!

On Tadaam!, the Numeridanse platform designed for kids, you can find playful videos that will teach you and your young ones new dance moves! 

Thanks to Théâtre Paris-Villette, you can enjoy great plays for kids and teens as young as 2-years-old. Among them are The Tree Robbers, the adaptation of Tomy Ungerer's beloved book; Chinese Stories, based on books by the illustrator and painter Chen Jiang Hong; and Virginia Woolf, a play about the famous author and her sister Vanessa.

If your kid is a book enthusiast...

2020 is the year of the comic! To celebrate, the French National Library (BNF) invites you to create your own comics with their free app BDnF. Become the creator of your own adventure!

For those who love to listen to a good story, you can find a selection of audiobooks on the Culturetheque website in the children's picture book section or a collection of podcasts, including famous stories like Asterix and Obelix, Tom Sawyer and Little Nicholas, online at France Culture .

The Chut collection by L’école des loisirs offers audiobooks with sound and music from the Inouïe company. To create a conversation between literature and music, actors and musicians are simultaneously recording their improvisations. 

Lastly, if you prefer reading to listening to stories, you can access more than a thousand e-books on EPIC website (free trial for 30 days), in English and French.
