Any time a family asks me when they should start teaching their children Spanish, I always say as soon as possible! Spanish books for babies are one of the best ways to guarantee you start teaching your little one as soon as you can. 

I love using books with real pictures to teach babies Spanish because they are able to connect the language to the real world! Research shows that when babies are shown real life images, they are able to recognize it easier in real life. Now connect that idea with language, and you are helping your baby not only learn about what that object looks like, but what it’s called in Spanish and English!

To help families who are teaching their babies Spanish at home, I put together a list of my favorite Spanish board books with real photos. These work great in Montessori homes that want to grow their bilingual bookshelf! These are Spanish board books that my own babies and toddlers loved.
