The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Sign up for any of our subscriptions and get a limited edition, beautifully illustrated hardback book to wrap up and put under the tree in time for Christmas.

From January, they’ll receive a new Story Box each month. Each one includes an original story, audiobook, flashcards and a whole bunch of fun activities.

Watch them fall in love with the stories and learn something new at the same time – it’s the hidden vegetables approach to language learning.

Inside the box

Our Story Box subscriptions are not just for Christmas – it’s the gift that keeps on giving every month. Each Story Box comes with a beautifully illustrated original story, an audiobook narrated by a native speaker and loads of fun language learning activities.

All of our stories start in English and end in a different language by using our unique Clockwork Methodology™

How does it work?

1

We create engaging books that children love, complete with beautiful illustrations. They begin in English.

2

Gradually, words in the target language are introduced in contexts that make their meaning immediately apparent, using our Clockwork Methodology™.

3

Words become phrases, phrases become sentences and sentences become whole pages in another language.

“The story this month is a completely original retelling of a much loved fairy tale with a twist. The illustrations are charming. The activities are varied and fun. We also love the audiobook which helps with pronunciation. We are already looking forward to the next box!”

– Carole, review from Cratejoy
“My kids are natively bilingual (English / Italian), so tend to be quite ready to accept content in different languages, but with this pack I can’t imagine any kid who loves books turning their nose up at this. It’s kind of the “hidden vegetables” approach to language learning and I love it! Looking forward to the next one.”

– Paul, Spanish Story Box Subscriber
“We subscribed these to support our children’s love of language and to work alongside their French private classes. All I can say is they are brilliant. Since we received it a week ago, the contents of the box have been actively engaged with and loved by everyone in the family.”

– Jenny, French Story Box Subscriber
“I subscribed to the Spanish box because I thought my children would enjoy the books. I was not wrong! The stories are funny and, because the language is introduced gradually, my children picked up words in no time 🙂 Highly recommended for kids (and adults!). 5 stars from me!”
