About Us

Hola & welcome!

We're delighted to welcome you to a place where the magic of storytelling knows no linguistic bounds!

We believe books are bridges that connect cultures & perspectives, uniting the diverse pockets of our amazing world. And biliteracy is the gift that makes those bonds even stronger.

Our Mission

Sol Book Box was created to make quality Spanish books more accessible, & reading en español more fun.

Did you know that over 54 million people speak Spanish in the United States today? That's more español than you'll find in Spain! Despite that, less than 1% of all children's books sold in the U.S. today are Spanish language. :-(

As mamás & papás striving to raise biliterate kiddos, we wanted better. More options. Easier access. Better stories!

So whether your little ones are already avid Spanish readers, exploring it as a second language, or you’re simply looking to expose them to more diverse stories & perspectives, we're here to help you ignite their imagination and make the journey simple, joyful, & lasting.


Karina Batchelor is a proud Latinx mama from Miami, la ciudad magica. She's a longtime educator, writer, & creative, who you'll often find with a cafecito in hand at the nearest library, her homeschooling cooperative, or at the theatre where she works as a professional dramaturg.

Jeff Cambron is a voracious reader, erstwhile writer, brand builder, & dad to two kiddos living their best bilingual life in Spanish immersion school. He's seen first-hand the power of biliteracy for young readers, and is beyond excited to help more kids discover the joy of Spanish.
