I have more books for your bilingual cuties! These are the latest additions in our home and we are reading and re-reading and re-reading… Some were gifts, some were purchased and some are from the library. Only two of the books below are not bilingual (English only) but they are all by Latino authors and they all have a rich cultural theme.
Pele, King of Soccer/Pele, El rey del futbol by Monica Brown
Pablo Neruda: Poet of the People by Monica Brown
This one is only in English. Why not show your kiddie a Spanish poem from the poet? Pablo Neruda Para Ninos/ Pablo Nerudo for Children (Alba Y Mayo) (Spanish Edition)
Gracias / Thanks (English and Spanish Edition) by Pat Mora
Just In Case: A Trickster Tale and Spanish Alphabet Book
by Yuyi Morales
Diego Rivera: His World and Ours by Duncan Tonatiuh (English)
The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred by Samantha R. Vamos
Marisol McDonald Doesn’t Match / Marisol McDonald no combina by Monica Brown
It is very important that bilingual parents support Latino authors. We need more books like these and publishers, authors, librarians and teachers need to know that Latino children’s literature is a great component in our kids’ education. Our voices are heard by asking our librarians to stock these authors on their shelves and of course, when we personally purchase wonderful picture books that our children can treasure.
Do you have other bilingual books and/or Latino author recommendations? Would love to know!
Have a great weekend!
