Five bilingual picture books for Hispanic Heritage Month

For Hispanic Heritage Month, I've comprised a list of bilingual picture books perfect for young ones looking for educational but fun reads that will further their Spanish language skills.

Here are some of my faves-

I Love Saturdays y domingos is a tale by beloved author Alma Flor Ada. This story incorporates basic Spanish words ranging from colors, animals, and numbers, to so much more! This is a great book about family bonding perfect for reading over and over again.  


Amelia's Show-and-Tell Fiesta tells the story of a girl in a new school planning to share something very special for show and tell. This book demonstrates how families sometimes have difficulties keeping cultural traditions in new places, and how to find inspiration to keep showcasing these wherever life may take us.

Blue Frog: The Legend of Chocolate tells the story of how the Wind God, dressed as a blue frog, is able to lead young children to the Sun God's stored away sweet treasure. Who can resist learning more about such a delicious treat?

Conejito is a folktale originating from Panama that incorporates the popular children's song Tia Monica as well as tells the story of Conejito's interactions with a couple of other spunky animals.

Creative and educational, Frida Kahlo and her Animalitos journeys each of the many pets Frida had, from monkeys and turkeys to an eagle and fawn, to teach about what Frida may have had in common with each of these special animals! Drawings are of the talented John Parra, one of my favorite illustrators!
