Raphael is now 16 months old and he is as active as they come. He is a typical boy, he loves cars, trucks, base balls, basket balls, etc. I knew he was going to be a boys boy because his dad is exactly like that. But one of the things I wanted to instill in him since he was very little was my love for books. I remember buying books after books when he was just a few months old. My fiance would always look at me an laugh and say “He is too little for books” but I wouldn’t care, I still got them.
Now we have a huge library of books for Raphael and he loves them. He can spend hours looking at the pages and waiting for me to tell him what everything is. Of course, he still prefers books that have cars, trucks, or balls in them haha.
Now that I have accomplish to help him discover his love for books, I realize how difficult it can be to find good bilingual books for toddlers. As you already know, we are a bilingual family. My fiance and I are both from Venezuela. We speak both English and Spanish fluently and we also speak both languages to our son. He responds to both perfectly, but I want to start separating English and Spanish so he doesn’t get confused as he grows up.
That is why I was so extremely happy to come across Sol Book Box, which is a monthly Spanish and bilingual book box subscription company. If you subscribe, each month you would receive a box with meticulously curated Spanish and/or bilingual children’s books.
In addition, each box contains 2-3 extra items that relate to the story and enhance the reading experience. Sol Book Box offers two types of book boxes: board book (ages 0-2) and picture book (ages 3-7ish).
In addition to the subscription model they also have boxes for sale as one-time items in their Shop. And let me tell you, they make the perfect gift for holidays, baby showers and birthday parties.
It was adorable when we received our Sol Book Box, Raphael was beyond excited and now I know where I will be getting our bilingual board books for Raphael! WIN WIN 🙂
