Help your reader grow in 2 languages with stage-based Spanish curation

Language learning can be a bit of a balancing act. Nurturing real growth, while also making the journey enjoyable for children and parents…well, it usually takes a plan.
Here’s a peek at ours!


Before we get started, let's keep in mind that every child is unique! Some soak up language like a sponge, while others might need a little more TLC. But after curating thousands of books for our readers, trends do tend to emerge. So if your family is just diving into Spanish, this roadmap might work for you!

Age 0-2
Foundational Concepts

We often begin by focusing on foundational developmental concepts such as numbers, colors, shapes, & everyday objects—ideally presented in pure Spanish by authentic voices. These books provide a gentle introduction to español while stimulating early cognitive development and laying the groundwork for future language acquisition.

Age 2-3
Building Connections

As children begin to explore language and storytelling, we transition to bilingual books with simple, easy-to-understand narratives featuring both Spanish and English text. These stories help children to make connections between the two languages and expand their vocabulary in a familiar context.

Age 4-5
Cultural Exploration

Around age 4, children are often ready to delve deeper into cultural touchpoints and more complex storylines. For this stage, bilingual books that celebrate diverse cultures, traditions, and experiences can be wonderful. They’ll entertain your growing reader while also fostering empathy, cultural awareness, and a deeper appreciation for linguistic diversity.

Age 6-8
Mastery and Fluency

Armed with a strong foundation in both English and Spanish, children aged 6-8 may be ready to explore pure Spanish picture books. Challenge your reader to expand their language comprehension skills, nurturing confidence, fluency, and a lifelong love of learning!
