Early language learning is so important. Studies and personal experience demonstrate that the earlier you expose a child to a second language, the easier it is to learn. It can also lead to greater skills in other school subjects, as well as increased communication skills that aid in making new friends around the world and help in many careers.
The creators of this project have been passionate about finding innovative ways to expose children to learning new languages and came up with this clever book idea. It's not based solely on a whim and imagination, but on proven methods of language learning that anyone can use, as well as their own personal studies. Also unique and amazing is that they have taken the ideas of young learners and converted those into parts of the stories. Backers can even vote on their favorite ideas.
Already they have reached their initial goal to get the project going, but also wish to keep expanding upon the dream to expand upon what is offered with this book.
Alex and Jonny, the co-founders of One-Third Story, have one of the most comprehensive and detailed Kickstarter campaigns I have ever seen. They provide previews and mock-ups of the book and some of the extras, as well as a very detailed plan of action and early reviews. All of your questions will be answered when you read through it. If you have more, simply ask!

Having grown up when cartoons still came on Saturday morning, Frady remembers the magic of those classic, zany characters of yesteryear, and tries to recapture that same spirit in his children's books. Most of his books attempt to provide information, or in the case of children's books, offer a book that parents can use to teach kids.
Nutrition is a big focus of most of his books as Frady is a firm believer in taking responsibility for one's health and fitness.
