A heartfelt thank you to Jacques Goldstyn, our ally and illustrator since 2005, for all his beautiful illustrations and collaborations of all kinds on our projects, year after year! We owe him our logo, our mascot Linoutou and all the drawings you see on this site.
Jacques has been an illustrator for Les débrouillards magazine for many years and is the author of the resulting comic strips. He is also the creator of committed literary works for young people, imbued with poetry and tenderness: Le petit Tabarnak, Le dragon vert,Le prisonnier sans frontières, Jules et Jim, Les étoiles, andmost recently Le tricot.
He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the magnificent Les Étoiles (TD Canadian Children's Literature Award 2020
Prix des libraires du Québec 2020 - Youth category - 6-11 years old), the very moving Azadah (Governor General's Literary Award in 2017) and the adorable L'Arbragan (Prix des libraires du Québec in 2015, TD Canadian Children's Literature Award in 2016, Prix du livre jeunesse des bibliothèques de Montréal in 2016, Prix Sorcières Premières lectures 2016, Finalist for the 2014 Governor General's Award - Children's Literature - Illustrated Books category).
In September 2016, when I met David's mother for the first time, she seemed extremely distressed at the idea that her 8-year-old son, because of his problems in French, was going to miss his primary and secondary education, his entrance to college, to university, in short his life.... She had explained all this to us through her oldest daughter who acted as an interpreter, as she spoke neither English nor French.
I am writing to let you know how much Carole through your reading program "J'apprends avec mon enfant" has greatly helped my boys with their French. My son passed to regular class about two weeks ago and is very happy and is doing very well. His new teacher asked us to work on punctuation and giving emphasis where needed while reading with him...
Thank you very much,
I really appreciate the service JAME offers for children with reading difficulties. It is an outstanding programme which I believe enables children to develop not only reading skills but also emotional skills which enrich them personally and socially.
