Spain: Travel for kids by Dinobibi Publishing

"Dinobibi and Rio will join you in every step of the journey. You will have so much fun discovering Spain – its history, geography, flags and symbols, wildlife, culture and more! Whether preparing for a vacation, or simply wanting to learn about Italy, this book gives you all you need to know, fun places to visit, tasty food to try, and fun, interactive pop quizzes throughout."


Molly and the Magic Suitcase: Molly Goes to Barcelona by Chris Oler

"Molly and her brother Michael are curious about the world. Inspired by food, family, and friends, they trek to faraway places using a magic suitcase. Michael and Molly visit Barcelona and learn about the city's culture in their second adventure. They find a new friend in Francesca and learn about Gaudi's amazing architecture, try fun new food, see the wonders on Las Ramblas, and much more. Share their experiences in this unique story."

5-Minute Spanish Short Stories by Espanol con Carrot

"Cultural knowledge is an essential part of any language learning. It is the backbone of a language’s personality and the main ingredient to a language’s unique flavor. It is no different in the case of the oh-so-diverse Spanish. What means baby in one part of the Hispanic world might mean bus in another (we’re looking at you, guagua), and what is considered socially acceptable in one might be a cultural offense in another."


Show Me The Way to Spain by Baby Professor

"This time, we’ll go to Spain to learn about the people, culture and tradition. Spain also has a lot of pleasant sights to see and food to eat. Of course, you cannot have the full experience in this book but at least you will get an idea. Reading will prepare your mind to become more fluent of the ways of the world. Enjoy the read!"


Medio Pollito / Half Chick: Spanish Tale by Eric Kimmel

"Through an adventure, Medio Pollito discovers that even though he is a half chick, he has a whole heart."


Gazpacho for Nacho by Tracey Kyle


Serafina Soars by Alma Hammond

"Help your children understand that they can realize all the things that shyness is holding them back from, by taking small steps every day. At the same time, kids learn about animals and places of southern Spain: Eurasian Eagle Owls, Donkeys, Flamenco Dancing, European Turtle doves, The Alhambra Palace, Iberian White Storks, The Granada Cathedral, The Rock of Gibraltar, and Barbary Macaque Monkeys."

Maria the Matador by Anne Lambelet

"She’ll do anything to get her hands on more of them, even enter a bullfight. To win, she must outsmart the other matadors who don’t think she’s big enough, fast enough, or strong enough. With determination and creativity, spunky Maria will dance her way to victory―and into readers’ hearts."


Spanish-English Picture Dictionary by Catherine Bruzzone

"It's never too soon to start teaching boys and girls a second language, and this book presents pages filled with cheerful color pictures that help teach Spanish words to English-speaking children in early grades. It presents more than 350 illustrations of familiar objects, with nine pictures on each page. Every picture is labeled with its English word, followed by its Spanish equivalent."


The Spanglish Girl by Natalia Simons

"Anna is bilingual, so what could go wrong? She visits Spain every year, spends quality time with her family and spends all day playing with her friends in a small village. "
