Offer customers high-quality books in up to 40 languages!

Our communities are increasingly ethnically diverse. By offering books in multiple languages, booksellers can respond to the needs of all members of their communities while staying one step ahead of their competition.

Our dual-language books are offered with English and foreign language text on all pages in up to 40 language editions. So they meet the needs of a diverse customer base.

There is a huge and growing population of foreign-born and first-generation Americans. According to the Census Bureau, 47 million people spoke a foreign language at home in the year 2000. And many of these are young people. While Latin and South America account for the majority of the immigrant population, over 40% are from Asia and Europe and there are a growing number of immigrants from Africa.

If you would like a better understanding of the languages spoken in your particular community, please contact us. We can help provide you obtain relevant census data.

Offer well-reviewed multicultural stories to your customers.

Our products have been consistently well reviewed and have won awards for both the stories and illustrations (click here to see sample reviews). Many of the stories teach children about traditions in other cultures or tell fables and folk stories from other nationalities. In addition, all the dual-language products…

  • Have appealing, multi-ethnic characters
  • Are creative, clever and enjoyable
  • Develop tolerance, respect for others, and self esteem
  • Have strong, community settings
  • Help kids learn about other cultures and traditions
  • Are professionally translated in up to 40 languages

Most importantly… kids love these stories and will read them over and over!

Meet the needs of more customers with dual-language books and CDs.

All of our dual-language books are written in English and a foreign language, with over 40 languages represented.

The options for your customers are greater with a dual-language text than with a single language text. The stories and illustrations are so enjoyable that readers may choose to use them for multiple purposes.

  • English-speaking families use them to introduce their kids to a foreign language.
  • Foreign-born parents and grandparents use them to help their children maintain a native language and preserve their heritage.
  • Foreign language and diversity teachers, as well as teachers of English as a Second language, use them as excellent supplementary teaching materials.
  • Some customers will read the books only in English. The creative stories rival the best English-only children’s books available.

CDs of many of the stories are available in numerous languages, so the books can be enjoyed and used as a resource even if the reader (or parent) does not speak the foreign language.
