The Best Spanish Books for Spring

¡La primavera ya está aquí!

Could I love this Spanish spring board book any more!? I don’t think so. I love the beautiful illustrations, the way we can follow the same characters each season, and the clues to help kiddos see changes in nature. This is a favorite for us.

This is an absolutely stunning Spanish nature book that shows the magic of the changing seasons. You can see how much each month changes a forest with gorgeous illustrations. This is a beautiful Spanish book to have for your nature lovers.

This is one of our favorite books! I love Lola and my kids love to be just like her as they pick out their seeds and watch them grow. It is such a sweet story and it is perfect for any garden lover.

This is such a great book that can help answer so many of those “why” questions that kids have about gardening and how seeds grow! It is a great book for any family doing a nature study with seeds and has lots of wonderful information for your little learners. We love this one!

Sobre los pájaros is an easy to follow Spanish book for kids wanting to learn more about birds! This is a perfect Spanish book for springtime bird watching. 


I recommend these books on almost all of my lists because my kids just adore them. They are great for beginning Spanish speakers and have short sentences on each page. This is a fun book to have when talking about rain and spring weather.

Oh we just love this hide and seek book! It always makes my kids giggle and they love looking through and exploring the interactive pages. It is a great way to grow your vocabulary in Spanish and also a suitable book for intermediate beginners. This is also a great Spanish book to have in the spring to talk all about bunnies and different animals and bugs coming to life again! We love this one.

El conejito andarín

This sweet story, in English The Runaway Bunny, is such a wonderful book to read in the springtime! We love following this little bunny who wants to run away but can’t escape the unconditional love of his mama. This is a great story to read in Spanish and we especially love reading it around Easter time. 


Un poema para cada día de primavera…A poem for every day of spring!

What a beautiful time to bring some Spanish poetry to your season! You can read one poem every day or pick one to read and really dive into for a whole week. I love that this book has such a wide variety of poetry to fit into every day of the season and the illustrations are so much fun.

This is a sweet book for teaching your little one all about the joy and beauty that comes with spring. From different activities to do to the blossoming flowers and trees – this is a great story with fun pictures on every page!


Cute little cuaquito! This story is so sweet about a mama duck and her ducklings. This is a great counting book and could be so fun to read and act out as you go. 


I love all of Britta Teckentrup’s books and we have read Árbol probably 500 times in the last few years. My kids love the peek through pages and it is so much fun to watch the different animals coming alive as the seasons change.
