Authentic Spanish List Grades PreK-2 - AUTHSPNPREK2

Here at Lee & Low Books, we pride ourselves on publishing culturally and linguistically authentic books that all children can enjoy. We are proud to showcase stories that celebrate cultures, voices, and experiences of communities historically underrepresented or misrepresented in children’s literature. High-quality bilingual and Spanish books help build a solid foundation to achieve Spanish literacy or bilingualism while also affirming and validating a child’s identity, culture, and home language. The following suggested read-alouds are some of our most popular bilingual and dual language texts written by authors from the cultures featured in the books for Grades PreK-2.
