However, the texts chosen are literary and classical, useful for fluent and competent French speakers who wish to read some 17th to early 20th century French prose with the comfort of an English translation on hand for just in case.
If you really want a beginners reading book, I recommend Easy French Reader by R. de Roussy de Sales and/or Beginner's French Reader by Anne Topping. Both of these are very dated but they are the best I can find for beginners.
