Search Strategies - Foreign Language Kid's Books

Please note that there can be a blurry division between bilingual materials and foreign language materials. With this method you may discover books that are bilingual, meaning the story is told in both English AND another language. This is especially true for languages beyond Spanish and Chinese. 

For more information on how to specifically find bilingual TMC books, navigate to the next tab. 

There are multiple ways to locate bilingual education materials for children.

  1. Try a subject search, for a subject that contains "bilingual." Pair this with a keyword of the language or topic you are interested in.
  2. Try using the keywords: "bilingual" or "bilingual books." This is sometimes a good option, because a book may not be under the subject heading of "bilingual," but it's description might say something like "text in English and Japanese" (for example).  

*Remember to always limit by location to Teaching Materials Center.
