In today’s post, we’re going to explore 22 captivating picture books centered around colors in Spanish. As Lennox and I immerse ourselves in color learning activities this summer, I’ve witnessed firsthand the power of incorporating colorful language into our daily interactions.

From describing a “white doggy” to pointing out a “blue chair,” the transformation in Lennox’s confidence with colors, both in Spanish and English, fills my bilingual mama heart with joy.

A cornerstone of our language learning journey has been exploring the world of picture books. These books not only expand vocabulary but also foster emotional connections between us as we share stories together, a sentiment echoed by the National Children’s Book and Literacy Alliance.
