The Little Fig publishes multi-lingual and special-situation children’s books for pre-school and early-elementary-school aged children. Children can learn through visual, auditory and multiple language formats. The books are intended to be both entertaining and educational, teaching concepts, facts and, usually, a second language. Many of the books use race-neutral, gender-neutral animal characters. We offer:
- Multilingual language learning
- Engaging characters
- Vivid colors
- Educational tools
- Free activity sheets
- Music jingles composed for each title
- Free Spanish audio available on YouTube
This website also offers free downloadable activity sheets and coloring pages. Check out the fig4kids’ section to sing along with the title-specific jingles composed for each book.

Most of The Little Fig publications for children’s picture books integrate equivalent displays of bilingual languages. This is supremely helpful to parents, teachers, librarians and children whose English is a second language. Additionally, books with bilingual presentations on each page decrease the costs when purchasing one children’s bilingual book instead of two copies in different languages. Currently some Little Fig titles are available in:
English / Chinese (Mandarin)（普通话）
English / French / Français
Englisch / German / Deutsch
English / Korean / 영어/한글
English / Portuguese / Português
English / Spanish / Espanol
English / Tagalog / Tagalog
English / Telugu / ఇంగ్లీషు / తెలుగు
English / Vietnamese / Tiếng Anh / Tiếng Việt
Arabic and Urdu are available in text only format upon request.
There are numerous benefits to children who speak 2 or more languages. Some highlights include:
- Bilingual publications allow children to read and speak in their native language, becoming more academically literate in an organic and fluid manner.
- Research shows almost half of the world’s population speak 2 languages or more.
- Speaking and reading the easier language allows for more effortless transfer of literacy skills and concepts promoting overall language mastery development.
