50 of the Best Authentic Spanish Books for Kids
Inside: Authentic Spanish books for kids.
While I love our stash of picture books in Spanish and English, I really like finding original Spanish titles. And authentic Spanish books 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!
For more book lists and suggestions, be sure to see my Spanish children’s books page.
