Advice for Selecting Spanish-Language Library Books?

By Mary Ann Zehr — May 04, 2009 1 min read

Ann Harris, an elementary school librarian in Texas, posts a request in the comment section of my last blog entry: what resources are available to help school librarians find Spanish-language or bilingual books for children? After all, she writes, “I cannot talk students into a book that does not look interesting, no matter the quality.”

She’s found one good source, Isabel Schon’s International San Diego Library site, but would like to know of more blogs or web sites that have reviews of Spanish-language books for children and youths.

Can anyone help her out? I’m curious, too, to know what advice is available, so offer your ideas here in the comment section.
