Biblio Wonderland: Our 7 Favorite Spanish Board Books We Shared in 2023


‘Tis never too early to infuse some holiday magic into reading time with your bebé, even though we all know wrangling a book with a baby or toddler can be a festive adventure of its own. But, here's the jolly secret: what really jingles their bells is the sweet melody of your voice, the snugly warmth, and the gift of your undivided attention during storytime. And don't forget, as you waltz into tales, you're not just sharing stories but sprinkling a sensory buffet for your little one.

Bebés who are read to aren't just learning words; they're merrily exploring with all their senses. The pages transform into a tactile wonderland, the turning sound becomes a tiny holiday concert, and even the scent of the paper decides to join the festive fiesta – whether it's the aroma of a fresh new book or the comforting scent of a well-loved holiday tale. So, grab your festive gear, snuggle in with a cozy blanket, crack open a book, and let the sensory holiday jubilee commence!

#1. Naciste para mi

De todos los niños que hay por ahí, tú eres el perfecto para mí. A heartwarming tale from a papá's perspective. This is a cherished favorite that we still enjoy reading to our now six-year-old.

#2. Voy a portarme bien

One of our favorite books from the toddler years, this book gave endless laughter as the eager dog tries his best to not make the same mistakes again and again. My toddler loved saying, “¡No, Simon, no!”

#3. Copito

Copito was highlighted in our Winter Activities in the Summer: Beat the Heat with Cool Fun! Article. A great book to practice counting and learn lots of Spanish winter vocabulary.

#4. Besos for Baby

One of our beloved baby books, providing countless opportunities for besitos! It was an absolute delight when our little one returned the sweet kisses to the baby in the story.

#5. Soy un animal

The optimal books for babies feature large, contrasting images and minimal words. In these early stages, you're seeking bold and clear visuals, and this book fits the bill perfectly! It’s also a great way to get some fun, engaging animal sounds in.

#6. Buenas noches a todos

This makes for a wonderful bedtime story as your little one is sure to catch the yawning bug. We enjoy saying buenas noches to our cuddly toys for an extra touch of bedtime fun.

#7. Leo se viste

Join Leo in his wardrobe escapades filled with surprises, colors, and a touch of silliness! This book is not just about getting dressed; it's an invitation to a whimsical world of imagination and joy. A way to extend the learning as your bebé gets older, is to think of different outfits for Leo to wear.
