My family had the wonderful opportunity to review a set of bilingual children’s books for ages 2-8 by Book Bilingual. We received a set 6 books on USB with a target age of 2-8 years of age.You can like them on Facebook here
Did you know that the most important age for learning a new language is 0-5 years of age? Many parents are surprised when they learn that emergent literacy is learned not from lessons and curricula but from a child’s atmosphere, adult conversation, interactions and experiences. This is why exposing your child to a second language earlier in life greatly enhances their literacy skills once their language skills fully develop. In fact, studies have shown that bilingual acquisition leads to higher grades and intellectual ability. One draw back to exposing your child to another language is that it can be costly and many young families can’t afford it. Fortunately, you don’t have to enroll your child in language courses to reap the benefits of early bilingualism. There are plenty of ways to go about it free or very low cost.
Booklingual comes in Spanish and is in eBook format for easy reading on your iPod Touch, iPad, Smart Phone or other Android device. You can also view these books on your computer or eBook reader. They are fully colored and illustrated and you have 32 books to choose from on their website.
The books and materials that we received and reviewed are as follows : Bilingual Benny Likes Too Much, Bree and the Bee Can’t Share, Come to the Zoo!, Oh No, I’m Sick!, Grandma Cooks a Grand Dinner, Can You Guess What I Am?, Parent’s Guide, Super-Quick Guide to Spanish.
I thought the books were really fun and bright with good illustrations in each of the 6 eBooks we reviewed. The layout was done very well and lined up on my computer and other devices just fine. I am not a huge fan of eBook form but these books were nicely presented and my children, although older than the targeted age group, thought the books looked fun and inviting.
As an introductory, Book Lingual is offering a greatly reduced price for the entire program of 32 eBooks for 70% off. Plus when you order you will get a free book. You can purchase the pre order at their website .
