The Book That Teaches Your Child German Through A Story

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

A recent Kickstarter campaign is aiming to help children learn a new language “in the most enjoyable way possible” with a book that starts in English and gradually changes into a different language, and thanks to the support of the Goethe Insitut, the book is being made into German.

Learning new languages has become easier over the years, but many of the options available to kids are a bit boring. One Third Stories wants to fill this gap with a fun story that incorporates the ideas of over 1500 children that have helped write it.

When the book is released, which is estimated to be at the end of this year, it will be available as a hardcover book, an ebook and an audio book, and there will also be an accompanying app for iOS and Android.

One Third Stories far exceeded their $14,365 Kickstarter goal with less than 24 hours to go, but if you want to get one of the first copies at a discount, you can still pledge your support before the time is up.
