12 Heartwarming Spanish and Bilingual Children's Books About Love

...

As Valentine's Day approaches, we're reminded of the boundless love we share with our little ones. And what better way to celebrate this special day than by immersing them in stories that not only warm their hearts but also nurture their growing minds?

Raising bilingual children means surrounding them with even more love, empathy, and connection. So let's embark on this journey together as we explore 12 heartwarming tales that beautifully intertwine the themes of love and language, enriching our children's lives with every turn of the page.

MAMÁ PINGÜINA ES LA MEJOR

With a nod to the fascinating nature of penguin parenting, this charming adventure is filled with love and life, and will have both you and your little one happily on the edge of your seats. Another winner from the always-amazing Chris Haughton.


I LOVE YOU MY LITTLE TAQUITO

This adorable bilingual rhyming board book celebrates the love and bond between parent and child, while embracing beloved foods and traditions from Latino culture.


BESO

There are many types of kisses. Some cheer us up when we are down, others help us say hola to the ones closest to us, but the BEST and most powerful version is, without a doubt, a goodnight kiss from someone who loves you very much.


TE QUEREMOS, PROFE

We appreciate any libro that celebrates teachers (those at home and in school!). This NubeOcho title is a warm, big hearted story with colorful, classically drawn characters that's guaranteed to put a smile on your face.


AMOR, AMOR

What is love? So many things! This adorable board book is sure to bring a smile to any face, brimming with amor in all its shapes, sizes, colors, and permutations. It's an invitation for your little one to recognize and connect to the many emotions linked to love in all its forms.


ME GUSTA

Acclaimed author and illustrator Angela Dominguez combines Spanish and English in a poetic and touching story of family, reminding us that through the adventures and the heartbreak, love conquers all and transcends language.


ME QUIERO

I am wonderful and I love myself! You may not be perfect, but imperfection is beautiful and allows you to improve. Love yourself as you are, because you are great!

These eight stories (with reflections and activities included) will help your little one improve their self-esteem and practice self love.


¡OUAH!

Here's one for the dog lovers! Things go wrong the very first day Felipe brings his new dog home, and just when Felipe is about to give up, he learns something surprising that changes everything he thought he knew about his beloved pet.


MI SOMBRA ES ROSA

This beautifully written rhyming story tackles the subjects of gender identity, self acceptance, equality and diversity. Inspired by the author’s own little boy, the main character likes princesses, fairies and things "not for boys." He soon learns (through the support of his dad) that everyone has a shadow that they sometimes THINK they need to hide.


NOSTROS MEANS US

If I were a sheep, you would be a lamb. If I were a bear, you would be a cub.

Gentle and poetic with relatable, universal themes, this story is a moving bilingual ode to the unshakeable bond between a parent and child in the tradition of Runaway Bunny.


TE QUIERO, MAMÁ

Mom, with you the world is different. I like it when we dance, when we ride a bike or when we look at the sky... That's why I love you so much.

This picture book is perfect for a Mother's Day gift, or a loving bedtime read. (Also see TE QUIERO, PAPÁ.)


FAMILIA

A heartening addition to the award-winning Family Love (Amor de familia) series. An unbreakable bond and a red thread that connects us to our loved ones will guide us into this magical love story.

Familia is one of those treasures to keep in your library to read and reread over again as a way of expressing gratitude to the universe for having united us in this life.

Let's celebrate the profound bond we share with our little ones. Through the act of raising bilingual children, we're not only opening doors to new languages but also nurturing their hearts and minds with the gift of love in every word and every story. Happy reading, and feliz día del amor y la amistad!
