Bosley Sees the World

The first book in a series of 'The Adventures of Bosley Bear'.  This is the story of a small bear who is excited to see and experience everything around him.  This story encourages children to take on new challenges and helps to build confidence for children experiencing new things.  This book is about Bosley’s determination to challenge himself and discover new possibilities, and his realization that there is so much out there in the big world to explore.

A Dual-Language Book

The Adventures of Bosley Bear will be a series of dual-language books, each of them will be written in English as well as another language and it is specifically designed to teach young children new words and phrases using techniques like:

  • Repeat words
  • Simple phrases
  • Opposites
  • Highlighted vocabulary words
  • Contextual learning
  • Corresponding imagery
  • Vocab list

I will be publishing this book in several different languages and you can claim your own copy for just a $13 pledge to this campaign which includes shipping.  Just let me know which version of the book you'd like to have.  This campaign will allow me to print it in 6 languages to start with:

  • Spanish
  • French
  • Italian
  • Russian
  • Chinese
  • German

More stories about Bosley, and more translations will come later, so stay in touch and check Bosley's facebook page for updates.

Why Teach my Child a Foreign Language?

For children, learning a new language in the context of a story is such a powerful learning tool, because they can use the images and the characters and the plot to help them remember words and phrases.  And even simple foreign words and phrases can give a child a completely new perspective and open their eyes to entirely new ways of seeing the world. So help your child to learn something completely new with this book, 'Bosley Sees the World'.  Every day our planet becomes an increasingly closer community and introducing our children to a foreign language while they’re young will help them bridge the gap to global opportunities in the future.
