The importance of books in our bilingual household
Reading is very important for us in our household. We try to read before nap and before bedtime. Lennox gets so excited to go and pick out a book to read. He usually ends up picking out the same two or three books.
I’ve got to give it to him, the kid knows what he likes.
If you have followed some of our older posts, you probably know that we only speak Spanish to Lennox at home. While we do have have a handful of baby and toddler books in Spanish, I wish we had more books in Spanish. Let’s face it. Books are not cheap.
Here are some ways that I read to Lennox in Spanish without having a huge book selection in Spanish.
Christmas is the time that I do splurge on new books. They are the perfect stocking stuffers.
That’s why after some searching around, today I am going to share a list of 25 Christmas books in Spanish for kids!
If you don’t speak Spanish, that’s okay because guess what? It’s never too late, and children’s books are one of the best ways to learn Spanish. Also, it is so beneficial for your children to learn new languages, even if it’s just new words. With that being said, I hope you enjoy this list of Christmas books in Spanish.
