Hi Arnaud,

While not necessarily in line with the state of the art of FRP libraries, I can warmly recommend going through the parts of Paul Hudak's "Haskell School Of Expression" that cover the Functional Animation Library ("FAL", basically a light version of Fran). 
The book introduces FRP concepts gently and FAL is really nice to work with, at least when it comes to the type of code that is discussed in that book.

Good luck!
