Please be aware that reading a book through the screen of a computer, phone or tablet does not replace the necessary social interaction between the reader and the child.

Bilingual Key Therapy offers reading of bilingual books on our site to those families where parents do not have access to children’s literature in the desired language or do not have a good command of one of the two languages ​​to stimulate reading in their children. Our reading can also be used as a model of intonation and voice modulation to be imitated by parents who wish to learn how to read stories to their children.

Remember that reading a book is only part of the process to develop a child’s language through reading. Children should also point to objects in the book, and answer questions about the characters and the story.

It is recommended that during the reading of these books there be pauses in the video that allow the child to point out characters, name objects, name actions, and answer questions about the story.

If you need a guide to complete the reading of a book that your child has liked, Contact us so you can get a list of questions and activities for each story, in the language your family needs.

Bilingual Key Therapy is not associated or maintains any exchange with any publishers or authors of the books we read on our site.

Por favor sea consciente que leer un libro a través de una pantalla de computadora, teléfono o tableta, no sustituye la interacción social  necesaria entre el lector y el niño.

Bilingual Key Therapy ofrece la lectura de libros bilingues a través de nuestro sitio web a aquellas familias donde los padres no tengan acceso a literatura infantil en el idioma deseado o no dominen bien uno de los dos idiomas para estimular la lectura en sus hijos. La lectura de libros en nuestro sitio web también puede usarse como modelo de entonación y modulación de voz a imitar por los padres que deseen aprender cómo leer cuentos a sus hijos.
