I have an "indentify that book" game for you all!
When I was in kindergarden, one of my favorite (French) series of books was about this family of small, brown-furred animals who lived in a tree house, and the dad invented/named colours. I think there were two kids, but the main character was a boy. They may or may not have been a translation (likely from English). I remember very little of the actual language, and a lot about the fact that *I* wanted to live in a treehouse and help my dad invent colours. That's about all I remember. Awesome, I know. Anyway, I've been having a hard time finding good, interesting kids books in french, and today remembered these but of course don't have a clue what they were called or who wrote them or how I would go about finding them again.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

For greater things are yet to come...

Have you thought of asking a librarian ?
Some people in day care read a lot of books to children, they could possibly know ....
