How Do I Read BookLingual Books?
BookLingual books can be read on any device (iPad, Tablet, Phone, or Computer).
As a Spanish teacher, I really like these as a teaching tool. (If I didn’t, I wouldn’t plan to use them with my students!)
- The pictures are engaging and the stories are fun for kids. It’s clear that the intent is to entertain as well as teach. You’d be surprised how many foreign language materials are bland, lack storylines, and are clearly only there to teach specific words. It’s common sense that kids learn better when they are actually interested in the content.
- Some of the words with more difficult pronunciations have a “pronunciation guide” right there. This is certainly helpful for parents that are learning Spanish along with their children.
- Certain corresponding words are similarly colored in Spanish and English so children can make the connections between the two. In the past, I have often shied away from bilingual books because many of them confuse students more than teach them. Most beginning Spanish students assume that word order is the same in both languages and make connections between the first word in each sentence, the second word in each sentence, etc. By having two words with the same meaning highlighted in the same color, the student can make the proper word correlations.
- The books have patterns that help children learn grammar without it being explicitly taught. For example, I look forward to teaching noun-adjective agreement and word order to my younger elementary students with Come to the Zoo.
- The books have various ability levels, so your child has the ability to improve throughout the program.

Jorryn especially likes playing the memory games at the end of each book. I really like that these books offer a practical application and not just vocab words. Jorryn is able to read whole sentences instead of just learning one word at a time. He also got a chuckle out of the stories! I’m looking forward to continuing to use these books.

“… my princess is delighted! Because she is learning English!! They are beautiful! They have been learning many little things, and as the child masters each level, they move to the next one! My princess several times looks for the iPad to read! Little princess’s favorite is “Guess Who I Am?” The big princess loved them all! LOL, It is a fun way to learn Spanish or English in your reading corner!”

“These books are absolutely amazing! My 6-year-old begs to get on my smart tablet every day just to read them. She loves learning the Spanish words and seems to keep improving day by day. These books are a great addition to both kids and parents that are in the process of becoming bilingual”
-Autumn Nelson, mother of 6-year-old Hazel
