Stories have been used as a learning tool since the beginning of time, and that’s for a great reason: They’re effective teachers!
The illustrations in books can give meaning to new words. Repetition within children’s books allows children to practice a new language simply. And when new words are introduced by context clues, they’re easier to understand!
That’s why we believe that books are one of the best ways to learn Spanish!
Feppy books are curated to help make the Spanish language accessible to children while teaching valuable life skills, such as diversity, inclusivity, and friendship. Plus, each Feppy book contains exclusive access to an audio-video book for pronunciation.
Get to know Feppy books below!
A Very Particular School "Una escuela muy particular"
A Very Particular School "Una escuela muy particular" is a 39-page English Spanish book for kids with topics about respect and acceptance!
This ingenious story describes animals on a farm who suddenly begin to behave oddly until the ever-wise farmer — much to everyone’s surprise— turns this new behavior into learning experiences. In his school, each animal is guided through developing the hidden talent that was causing them to act in seemingly incomprehensible ways.
Juan the Baker "Juan el pastelero"
Juan the Baker "Juan el pastelero" is a 35-page English Spanish book for kids with topics about friendship and generosity!
Juan is an elephant full of goodwill and lots of close friends. His heart is so big he’s known to say yes to any request —and this takes him on a whirl of adventures time and again. Oh, and I almost forgot! He has a terrible memory too!
Juan has baked ten carrot cakes for his good friend the giraffe, who is planning her birthday party, but some of the cakes have gone missing! Between numbers, additions and subtractions Juan the Baker shows us the gift of generosity and recognizes that every problem has a solution in the end if you put your heart into it.
Friends on the Block "Los amigos de la cuadra
Friends on the Block "Los amigos de la cuadra" is a 45-page English Spanish book for kids with topics about friendship, diversity, inclusion, and fruit!
In this book, kids learn “it’s okay to be different,” and that we should include all people regardless of their appearance or the physical limitations they may have. The arrival of a new boy to the block is a reason to celebrate, despite the fact that he’s in a wheelchair. The boy is fascinated with fruit, so his welcome party features a variety of fruit, whose names kids will learn in Spanish and English. In the end, kids will learn that it’s possible for everyone to have a good time on wheels.
Each Feppy book contains exclusive access to an audio-video book to watch and listen to the story in both Spanish and English! Kids enjoy the animated audio video book and they get immersed in the new language. It's a great tool for parents who don't speak the language and a fun activity for the kids that guarantees entertainment.
Also each Feppy book has a vocabulary list at the end & a song that includes bilingual lyrics.
