The First Well: Learn Esperanto with subtitles - Story for Children "BookBox.com"
Have a look at the Esperanto, Story for Children
Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international auxiliary language. Its name derives from Doktoro Esperanto (Esperanto translates as 'one who hopes'), the pseudonym under which L. L. Zamenhof published the first book detailing Esperanto, the Unua Libro, in 1887.
Estimates of Esperanto speakers range from 10,000 to 2,000,000 active or fluent speakers, as well as native speakers, that is, people who learned Esperanto from their parents as one of their native languages. Esperanto is spoken in about 115 countries. Usage is particularly high in northern and eastern Europe, east Asia, and South America.
BookBox is a social enterprise that innovated the concept of "AniBooks" or animated books to support emergent literacy and language skills. BookBox is essentially a web-based jukebox of digital books in languages from around the world. It synchronizes the text, audio, and visual media to create an educational and entertaining reading experience for children and even adults who still have a child in them! Based on proven methods of Same Language Subtitling (SLS), BookBox aims to not only enhance children's basic literacy, but also facilitate their proficiency in foreign languages.
BookBox recently done an animated story in Esperanto with subtitles for learning. A "Book" for Every Child in Her Language.
