I wish I had discovered this line of books before I was done planning my Hispanic Heritage Month story times! I did use the Frida counting book this morning at the last minute. These are super easy books that are not just bilingual but focused on Latino culture. There are many more titles in addition to those pictured.
A quote from the Lil’ Libros page:
“In a world with a shortage of bilingual books for children, two mothers began their mission to introduce bilingualism and Latin American culture through picture board books. Lil’ Libros was created to inspire parents to read to their children and encourage them to do so in two languages. At Lil’ Libros, we celebrate Latin American culture and important figures in its history. Our books honor beautiful stories like the life of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and Cuban music icon, Celia Cruz in English and Spanish with rich and colorful illustrations while also introducing them to concepts like first words, numbers, colors, shapes, and biographies! We believe children’s books are seeds that when nourished allow for a child to turn their dreams into reality. Our goal is to make the world a better place by providing authentic stories that promote inclusivity and love!”
