“Over the years, I have seen firsthand how much easier it is for children to learn a second language when vocabulary is presented through song and rhyme. I have also witnessed children's enthusiasm for learning blossom when singing is incorporated into the lesson plan.”

Linda Bunn has been both a commercial and fine artist. Having completed a diploma in graphic and visual design, Linda's first professional work was in the field of advertising. Following a period of travel and inspiration in Europe, Linda returned to Canada and studied fine arts at the University of Waterloo. Upon graduation, she married and started a family. Her first child was followed by twins and art quickly became a part-time activity. After thirty-five murals in children's rooms and an illustrated children's book (Moon Canoe), her children are now of an age where Linda has more time to paint on canvas and pursue freelance illustration contracts. Teaching French through Songs and Games is the second time her work has been included in a book.
