Bilingual is Better

DeCuentos Story Videos App in Spanish

DeCuentos is an app unlike any I have seen before. Rather than being a typical storybook app where kids can interact with animated characters and scenes, DeCuentos brings traditional storytime into the virtual world. It includes a long list of videos of various native Spanish speakers reading children’s books aloud. I especially like that the stories the developers chose are a mix of classic tales — think Caperucita Roja and Cinco Monitos — and contemporary stories, some of which I had never heard beforeRead More ...

GoComics Bilingual (English/Spanish) Comic Book App

I am always on the lookout for Spanish and bilingual apps that are appropriate and entertaining for older children and teens, since my stepdaughters are in middle school and quickly losing interest in Spanish (unless it’s required for socializing). GoComics is an excellent app that features a diverse range of comics in both English and Spanish for teens and adults. GoComics features the classics, such as Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, and Doonesbury, but also has a wide array of newerRead More ...

Two Spanish Reading Skills Apps

Learning to read can be difficult, and sometimes as parents, we are unsure of exactly how to support our kids’ developing reading skills. That’s why having fun apps to assist us can make us feel more confident and even give us brand-new ideas for learning activities. Lee paso a paso and Lee paso a paso 2 are two great resources to have on your iPhone or iPad for those moments when reading practice with your child becomes a chore. The first appRead More ...

Voyager Kids Global Learning App

Today, I’m sharing a different kind of app with you. Generally, we prefer to review only apps with a Spanish language option. However, we’re making an exception for Voyager Kids because it is such a fantastic resource for globally-minded kids, like the ones we are hopefully all in the midst of raising. With four categories (Travel, Learn, Explore, and Play) and tons of fact-filled pages inside each one, Voyager Kids is a wealth of information about animals, plants, landmarks, culture, andRead More ...
