At Le toboggan, we believe in offering quality language resources for children 0 to 18 years old.
Our kids’ books are carefully curated by Filipa to suit bilingual children, such as hers, children exposed to a foreign language and schools (Scotch College, Geelong College, Lyndhurst PS, Augusta PS, Al Siraat College, St Patrick’s College…). We promote multiculturalism and literacy by bringing world stories to young readers in English and in languages other than English.
