Our Story | Sol Book Box

Our Mission

Despite a growing need for more diverse books, most publishers, bookstores, & distributors in the States have been slow to provide sufficient options. Sol Book box was born from a desire to make high-quality Spanish books more accessible, and reading en español more fun for little lectors everywhere.

¿Por qué?

16% of the U.S. habla español.

Bilingualism is in. ¡Qué emoción!

Without enough books. Um, que?

Crazy, right? Something's gotta change here.

As mamás & papás to our own bilingual kiddos, we've been there.  Our kids deserve more. Let's do better.
