Children Love Spanish Stories!

At night, after storytime, follow-up with Spanish storytime. Spanish stories will become so much a part of your bedtime routine, that your children will demand it.

Read short stories, with lots of pictures, in Spanish. Look for book and CD combinations and listen to Spanish stories on CD.

Fun Spanish for Kids CD includes the story of The Three Bears in Spanish.

In our classroom program, and in Spanish in a Basket we use very short dialog type stories to reinforce vocabulary. The stories are read by the wonderful Elba Llantin-Cruz and recorded on CD. After the short story, we ask the children to repeat the story (line by line), which makes for a more active experience and encourages speaking and correct pronunciation.

Here are some of our favorite stories and the vocabulary. Many more are available in Spanish in a Basket (link) or Classroom Spanish in a Basket or Classroom Spanish for Kids. The English translation is shown below for your convenience. However, it is really best for you and your child to focus on understanding the Spanish from context. That is where the pictures play a key role.

Our Story from lesson 1 is in English because it is an introduction and demonstrates why it is important to learn Spanish.
