Your Holiday Shopping Guide

What better gift than the gift of reading and language? If you're looking for the best books in Spanish to give to the little ones (or your favorite parents) this holiday season, here's a list of my top 15 favorites. Numbers 1 through 7 tie for first place - I simply could not arrange them in any way that would fairly represent how much I like each of them. Numbers 8 through 15 are in no particular order.

The Very Best

1. El pedo más grande del mundo

2. Erizo y Conejo, El susto del viento

3. Erizo y Conejo, La nube cabezota

4. Aventuras del alfabeto

5. La siesta perfecta

6. La gran fiesta de los olores

7. ¡Eso no es normal!

Also Great

8. ¿Cómo hablan los animales?

9. La oruga muy hambrienta

10. Adoptar un dinosaurio

11. Señor aburrimiento

12. Ana la menonita migrante

13. ¿Quién come qué?

14. El gallo de bodas

15. Abuela

I have reviewed many of these books in further detail, if you'd like to read more about them and why I recommend them, simply click on the title above. I also included a quick blurb for each book below, in case you're short on time.

1. El pedo más grande del mundo

This book is simply hilarious.

2. Erizo y Conejo, El susto del viento

3. Erizo y Conejo, La nube cabezota

Hedgehog and Rabbit are an adorable duo who look out for each other in their pursuit to enjoy their lives.

4. Aventuras del alfabeto

Very fun, vibrant, alphabet book chock full of alliteration. Not your average, simple, ABC book.

5. La siesta perfecta

This book is so fun to read to little ones, primarily because it involves making a loud, startling, snoring sound. Pato Mena's illustrations are super unique and adorable.

6. La gran fiesta de los olores

Another hilarious and sweet story by Pato Mena. This one is about blind moles who throw an olfactory costume party.

7. ¡Eso no es normal!

I love the messages in this book - don't judge others for being different; be kind.

8. ¿Cómo hablan los animales?

This is a very simple book that is fun to read with young children and babies because it involves making the animal sounds.

9. La oruga muy hambrienta

This classic story is a translation (not usually my favorites), but the illustrations are cute and it provides a simple yet interesting way to learn some basic vocabulary - colors, foods, numbers, and days of the week.

10. Adoptar un dinosaurio

This is a silly little story about a girl who wants a pet.

11. Señor aburrimiento

This book is the most complex on my list, and definitely more advanced in language and concepts, but my son often requests it even though I'm certain he doesn't fully understand it.

12. Ana la menonita migrante

A beautifully illustrated tale about a child's life on the move.

13. ¿Quién come qué?

A very simple yet fun read for little ones who enjoy moving the windows back and forth to hide and reveal the animals.

14. El gallo de bodas

A silly tale of a demanding rooster who eventually gets what he needs from his old friend, the sun.

15. Abuela

A sweet, whimsical story about a girl and her grandmother.
