Can I read children's books in Spanish online?

Asked by wallabies (1081points) May 27th, 2012

I want to practice my Spanish, and I think reading very simple kids’ books would be a great way to do this. It would be great if I could do this online, because it would be hard to hunt down hard copies of books written in Spanish where I live. Anyone know of such a website? Thanks!

My partner is learning French and is using this technique to gain experience. One site that has several children’s books in Spanish is the International Children’s Digital Library. The best of luck to you!

Sounds like a plausable way to do it since that is how we learned to read english in the first place. Simple words sound the best way to go at first. Good luck!

I didn’t know of that website @Pied_Pfeffer and @wallabies thanks for asking this question because now we can chat together in Spanish as we progress :P

Besides children’s books I would also highly recommend reading online / mobile versions of tabloids in the target language. Generally there will be a context there so you will pick up the language quicker and even unconsciously. The material would hold your interest longer as it isn’t written for children. And as you get used to the language and vocabulary you should gradually work your way into mainstream broadsheet newspapers, magazines and then books.
