One Third Story Subscription Boxes Review

A review of the One Third Story Subscription Boxes

Imagine a story which starts in English and finishes in one 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 boxes for kids work.

This new and exciting subscription pack for little language learners aged 4-9yrs is now available in Spanish, French, German and Italian with more languages planned for the future.

In each monthly subscription box, 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 have a love for languages, and books, so the One Third Stories Subscriptions have been a big hit in our house. We received 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

The One Third Stories subscription pack are truly unique. 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 subscription 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

The One Third Story 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.

This is great if you are trying to teach kids a language you don’t speak, because you can still 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. The audiobook is great as it allows your children to read the book independently without you.


Activities enforce language learning in this subscription box for kids

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 box there are educational activities such as flashcards, and games, using the new vocabulary to enforce the learning of the language.


Monthly Subscription Box For Kids: The gift that keeps on giving

Subscriptions boxes for kids are the perfect gift that keeps giving. Take the stress away from selecting books when they are already selected for you, and delivered to your door every month.

Not only do the One Third Story books make fantastic bedtime stories for kids, they are the perfect way to introduce a new language or encourage your child to learn your native tongue.

One Third Stories Subscription for Kids


  1. Alyssa

    My two year old would love the stories but isn’t quite ready for all of the activities. Is there anyway to just buy the books?

  2. Randa

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

  3. 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 🙂

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  9. 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!

  10. Mara Sammartino

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