Are you looking for more German things to read? Something nice and easy? Something challenging? Something you can read together with your child(ren)?
I may have found an interesting website for you: Amira
It was created as a reading aid for German primary school children and has stories at three different levels which you can read yourself or listen to while you read.
Level 1 is very basic. To access them, click on ‘lesen 1’ which shows you all the easy books. I show you some screenshots of ‘Mein Haus’ which was the easiest of them all.
As you can see on the left, the book is available in German and other languages, very useful if you’d like to check whether you understood everything. It is also available as a picture book (Bilderbuch) if you just want to look at the pictures with your child or if you want to challenge yourself and re-tell the story in your own words – in German, of course!
Level two is a bit more advanced. I’ve taken two screenshots from the book ‘Die Wichtelmänner‘, one in German and then the same page again in English.
The next picture is taken from ‘E-Mail oder Flaschenpost‘, a level three book. As with all the other books, you can read it, listen to it and also read it in English.
Here’s the link again to the website: http://www.amira-pisakids.de/
