We have been asked lots of times about Spanish books we have at the nursery and the best books to read in Spanish.
So we put together some lists by age of all the books we have.
The best option is to read books that you already know, so you will know the meaning of some words.
Also if you listen to someone reading it, you will know the correct pronunciation.
As you read, you can ask the children some words in Spanish saying: "What is this?" or "¿Qué es esto?"
This way, you are keeping their attention and in each book they will learn new vocabulary that they will associate with a story.
Below, you can find some books. You can listen to them in English and in Spanish, and if you want to, you can buy them using the link.
