While I love our stash of picture books in Spanish and English, I really like finding original Spanish titles. And authentic books in Spanish for kids are not always easy to get! It’s taken some digging, but I’ve found quite a few treasures here. As a non-native Spanish speaker, I love knowing these books will expose my kids to that authentic voice and culture I can’t always provide.
Although some books listed here are bilingual, I looked for ones that were written in Spanish first, by a native author. Normally I like to include a little blurb about each title, but we’re still working our way through the list. I didn’t want to wait to share all of these with you!
You’ll notice this list is very Alma Flor Ada-heavy as well. Honestly, I just love her books, and there were many more I could have included. Let me know in the comments what you would add to your list!
