ABOUT SOL BOOK BOX

An early focus on reading is one of the most valuable investments you can make in your child’s future. Reading of any kind helps make for confident, smart, and emotionally healthy kids. Bilingual reading in English and Spanish does all of this, while exposing your niños to greater vocabulary, broadening their cultural awareness, and setting them up for success in an increasingly connected world.

With each Sol Book Box delivery, we strive to illuminate language for the child in your life, and make learning a more joyful experience for the entire family.

So what’s in the box?

First of all, get ready the best Spanish language and bilingual children’s books you’ll ever read. (Seriously.) We personally review hundreds of books each year to make sure that each selection is culturally relevant, phenomenally written, and beautifully illustrated. From the Amazon jungle to the Argentine countryside, from urban Spain to the coast of Mexico, we bring a little slice of each country to your home.

But it doesn’t stop there!  Our team is constantly on the hunt for more ways to enhance your child’s bilingual journey and create a more joyful experience that lasts.  With each shipment, our subscribers can look forward to toys, activities, games, learning aids and digital activities that reinforce key book themes, strengthens family bonds, and make kids look forward to their monthly Sol Book Box delivery that much more.

Why Bilingual?

Oh don’t get us started!  Not only can early exposure boost communication skills, help children develop a better working memory and improve overall cognitive performance, developing a second language proficiency is also extremely valuable both for forming new social connections, and succeeding in the workplace.  And that’s really just the tip of the iceberg.

A lifelong brand builder, Jeff previously co-founded the Brooklyn-based Creative Agency Mustache.  With a young daughter enrolled in a Spanish immersion school (and a son soon to join her), Jeff has seen first-hand the power of a bilingual education, and is proud to help bring the Sol Book Box experience to families everywhere.

“The minute my family became a part of the bilingual scholastic community, I saw the amazing benefits of secondary language fluency, as well as the clear need to support this journey in the home. Language learning can be a beautiful, joyful, meaningful experience for children and families alike, and it is our mission and privilege to help enable that.”

Vanessa

Founder

Vanessa is an entrepreneur, educator, and mamá to three bilingual daughters. She is the founder of both Sol Book Box and BILINGUIFY!, a program to help parents connect with the fun and joy of raising bilingual kids. Vanessa is a native of Chihuahua, Mexico and loves work that lies at the intersection of communication and migration.

“The idea for Sol Book Box came to me after my daughter picked out the same five Spanish books at the library (the ones I had memorized!) to bring home yet again. I desperately wished we had a bigger selection of libros, at the library and at our local bookstores. When I first dreamed up the idea to bring Spanish children’s books to bilingual families, it stemmed mostly from my own passion to make sure my children were raised to be bilingual. So many of the opportunities I’ve enjoyed, in both my career and my personal life, have been possible because of the languages I speak.”

We put a lot of thought into curating a beautiful and memorable experience for you and your children. Discover why so many parents love Sol Book Box and experience the benefits of raising a bilingual child.
