Lil’ Libros Books are the cutest way to learn Spanish with your kids + BOOK GIVEAWAY

I took Spanish for three years in High School, but never excelled to conversation level. I understand it more than I can speak, and know a few words here and there. Now that I have a child, I see it as a fresh start for me to try again and for us to both learn together. Lil’ Libros books are the cutest way to do just that. Colorful, adorably illustrated bilingual books with various relevant themes make it fun and memorable to learn.

Lil’ Libros is the brainchild of Latina entrepreneurs and best friends Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein. They co-founded a publishing company to create their vision of bilingual first concept books. Using cultural themes to teach counting, colors, anatomy, and more, Lil’ Libros is more than just vocabulary.

My daughter and I have three of the books (Frida, Loteria, and Lucha Libre), and thoroughly enjoy reading them together. Lucha Libre is my personal favorite, and I think it’s my daughter’s too. “Ombligo” was definitely not a word I remember learning in Spanish class, now it’s one I will never forget!

These books are currently available from Lil’ Libros:


Learn colors in English and Spanish while learning about Mexican political figure Emiliano Zapata


“Un Elefante se Balanceaba,” is a beloved nursery rhyme in Latin America which involves counting


Lucha libre, or freestyle wrestling, is a colorful and big part of Mexican culture for fans of all ages


Lotería is the Spanish word for lottery. This book features words common in both cultures such as “rooster”, “rose”, “tree”, and “heart”


La Llorona (“The Weeping Woman”) is a legendary ghost prominent in folklore. According to the tradition, La Llorona is the ghost of a woman who lost her children and now cries while looking for them in the river, often causing misfortune to those who are near or hear her.


Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patron saint of Mexico. She is a powerful symbol of Mexican faith and identity. 


Frida Kahlo is one of the world’s most famous Latin American painters, also well known as an amazing female artist.


Cuauhtemoc is the embodiment of indigenist nationalism in Mexico, who is celebrated in paintings, music, and popular culture.


The story of Celia Cruz, the “Queen of Salsa”
