One Third Stories – A Unique Subscription to Help Kids Learn a Language

One Third Stories Subscription for Kids

We are Teaching our kids Spanish with One Third Story Subscription Boxes!

Bilingual Kidspot is giving away a 3 month subscription of this amazing subscription to help you teach kids Spanish or French from One Third Stories! See the end of this post for details.

Imagine a story which starts in English and finishes in Spanish, or French, or another language. Bit by bit introducing new words and phrases throughout the book helping your child learn new vocabulary. This is how One Third Stories subscription for kids work.

This new and exciting subscription pack for little language learners aged 4-9yrs is now available in Spanish and French with more languages planned for the future. Each month, children receive a new book, along with the online audio, flashcards and educational activities and resources to help them learn their target language.

My two bilingual boys who are almost 4 and 6 have a love for languages, and books, so the One Third Stories Subscriptions have been a big hit in our house. Alex and Johnny, the founders of the company sent us a 3 month subscription in Spanish to review, and my kids absolutely love it.

A story which starts in one language, and finishes in another

I have read many bilingual books, but the books which come in the One Third Stories subscription pack are truly unique. In fact, I have never seen another book like it. Starting off in English, the first few pages of the book are like any other book. But then the fun starts.

Slowly, new words are carefully placed in Spanish. So, for example the first box includes the book “How the dinosaur got his shoes” The first word introduced is “zopattos” which means shoes in Spanish. Every time the word shoes is meant to be written it is replaced with the Spanish version.

Continuing the book on the next pages, the story follows a dinosaur trying to find the perfect pair of shoes. Colours and numbers are introduced, and written in Spanish replacing the English words. By the end of the book, half of what you are reading is in Spanish and you and your child have learned a whole lot of Spanish vocabulary without much effort.

The next boxes contain other exciting books which introduce different vocabulary and use more of the target language.

You can understand the book even if you don’t speak the language

These books are written so cleverly though, that if you don’t speak a word of the language, you will know what the replaced word is supposed to mean. Which is great for me, because I don’t speak much Spanish and I could understand what was happening in the story.

You can even listen to the audio of the book online, to make sure you have the right pronunciation, which again is good for me as my pronunciation is terrible. The audiobook also allows your children to read the book alone.

Activities enforce language learning

A glossary page can be found at the end of the book which goes over the new vocabulary you have learned while reading the story. And within the subscription pack there are educational activities such as flashcards, and games, using the new vocabulary to enforce the learning of the language.

    This is such a great resource!! Eager to use it or win it!!

  2. Susie

    My almost 6 year old loves learning Spanish and reading books with Spanish. Her birthday is coming up soon. This would be a great gift!

  3. Renee Einhauser

    Grandma speaks Spanish. This would be a great start to teach the kids even though I don’t speak it yet! We’d love to win this!

  4. Can people in US enter? My oldest would love these because he would feel like he could read them on his own! He wouldn’t touch an all Spanish book, but this might be the trick!

  5. Dora

    I would love this subscription for my 4 year old son! I am working on teaching him more Spanish and practicing as much as we can. These books look amazing!

  6. Izumi

    My daughter studies Spanish at school as her third language. Unfortunately both of her parents can’t speak Spanish and I believe these materials will help her study a lot in a fun way.

  7. This looks like a fantastic learning tool for both languages!

  8. Catherine Rushall

    My 3 year old daughter is bilingual English/German and I’m starting to introduce French through the dual lingual Lucie Chat books (also available in Spanish). We’ve exhausted those now and so this would be a perfect and fun way to introduce a third language. The only problem is we currently use French as a ‘code language’ as it’s the only one we both know and she doesn’t! We’re going to have to learn a new secret language or improve our spelling out loud! Looking forward to when they bring these out in German and Italian. She’s also learning Spanish at nursery so will have to tell them about these subscription boxes too 🙂

    I would love for my five to learn a language this way. It seems like an easy way to incorporate new vocabulary.
