Blossom is an interactive e-book reader that helps parents and teachers turn storytime into a fun activity for learning a new language.  It uses a proven language acquisition method that naturally introduces a new language to the readers, on the pages of storybooks they love.

Once the BLoSSoM app has been installed, a user chooses the native language and the target language, then selects titles from a growing library of classic and modern children’s books presented in those two languages.

For Parents
Blossom enables you to read to your child in a foreign language even if you’re not fluent in it — in fact, you get to practice speaking it alongside your little one. The scaffolded approach that gradually increases the target language, along with the audio pronunciation, help you pick up everyday words and useful phrases.

For Children
Kids love to read their favorite books over and over again. Blossom offers a fun way to spice things up and keeps the story fresh each time. Same story, but evolving text, and a more exciting reading experience. What better way for young children to be immersed in a language than being absorbed in a familiar and beloved storybook?

For Librarians
Blossom offer books that are authentic to the communities your library serves, featuring many western classics as well as stories that originate from other corners of the world and are often difficult to find in the U.S. What better way to delight your readers and make them feel welcomed than by offering books from their culture and in their language?
