BookLingual {Review}

This is a sponsored post.

We want our children to learn Spanish. Our first plan was to let Drew teach it, since he has a Master's degree in Spanish Translation. But, he's very busy with his PhD work. And even though I took Spanish for three years in high school, most of it I don't remember because I have not used it. Charis has been showing an interest in speaking Spanish and is able to count from one to ten and knows a few colors. When I saw BookLingual Spanish for Kids Set, I wanted to get it.

The complete set includes 32 digital books + games and activities. There are 11 Level 1 books, 11 Level 2 books, and 10 Level 3 books.  At the end of every book, there are games and activities. The books are included on a CD and can easily be transferred over to any device, such as an iPad, tablet, or ereader for easy reading.

My thoughts:
The first time I opened BookLingual, Charis and I read five Level 1 books. She wanted to keep reading, but we had other things to do. The next day, she remembered five words-oso, mono, maestro, l├ípiz, and pizarra. Charis enjoyed "turning the page" herself on the computer. I liked that it was a read-aloud audio book; I did not have to read in Spanish and potentially mispronounce words. The games and activities at the end of the book also helped Charis learn the basic Spanish words.

Like BookLingual on Facebook. Buy on Amazon. BookLingual is giving away 3 Free ebooks.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally
and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. Very cool! I love that she didn't want to put the books down! That's a great thing to say about a company and product! I can't wait to hear how her progress goes :)

  2. What a neat idea! Unfortunately, I don't take to new languages easily...but having traveled, I know how important it is to know another language and will be encouraging my kids to learn Spanish. They're a little young now, but I'll have to look into this when they get a little older.

  3. Awesome! I have wanted to include some language learning in our preschool time at home, but I haven't found a good curriculum yet. What are is your child?

  4. I think my girls would love something like this. My oldest is 7 and always pretends to "speak" Spanish. Meanwhile my two year old is still absorbing language like a sponge. I'll have to check them out a little more, this may be a great Christmas gift :)

  5. We were just discussing yesterday about best programs to learn Spanish. I will have to check it out

  6. I really want to teach my son Spanish and this looks like a great option!

  7. This looks like fun! I bet my kids would love it!

  8. I didn't know that anything like this existed! I will definitely keep this in mind for my future kiddos!

  9. Bilingual in early childhood is a great way to go and this sounds like a fun way!
