These delightful little stories immerse kids in the Spanish language while captivating their imagination and keeping them engaged. Although little ones may need a grown up to help them flip through pages and enjoy the different components at first, navigating the app is simple and the process, repetitive, which helps build independence. The simple, yet supportive design, which includes an on-demand tutorial and clear verbal directions, empowers older kids to enjoy the app independently. The graphics are colorful and the interactive component adds an element of surprise. Will it be an animation, additional text, or a new Spanish vocabulary word? Some of the stories touch upon important themes, such as friendship, overcoming fears, and embracing differences, offering learning opportunities other than just Spanish language. The Magical Sticker Book encourages creativity, gives kids the space for open ended play, and the space to narrate and illustrate their own stories. The levels that involve listening to stories or repeating what they hear are developmentally appropriate and inviting for preschoolers as well as older kids who are already reading on their own. The experience leverages detailed images, repetition, intonation, and translation to help kids make sense of each story as well as the Spanish language. The option to record and hear oneself speaking Spanish isn't only fun, it helps kids see how far they've come. The games and Read by Myself level are appropriate for kids who already have a phonological foundation, understand the concept of spelling, and can read on their own. FabuLingua – Learn Spanish is designed to grow with kids and continue challenging them as they learn and grow.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
