Beginning French Reading Exercises

Links to reading exercises for beginning French students.
  1. French Literacy

French English Bilingual Books - French English Dual Language Books
I don't like to read translations, because I believe that something is lost when literature is translated out of its original language. However, bilingual books are a great way to enjoy literature when your language skills aren't quite good enough to read the original. These books are French classics with the original French and English translation, so that you can compare as you read.
