Bilingual Winter Books for Kids

Un Trineo para Gabo

When a boy is new to town and doesn’t have many friends, he discovers the beauty of community AND a snowy day. This is a heartwarming story for any cozy winter day. 

Tren de Invierno

One of my absolute favorites! A sweet story that follows forest friends as they prepare for the winter and their journey south. This is a great bilingual book to learn all about winter woodland animals, and has amazing illustrations.

Un día de nieve

A classic winter book for young kids. Follow along with Peter as he explores the winter wonderland that he woke up to, and discovers new wonders near his snowy home. I love this sweet story, and my kids ask me to read it again and again. This is perfect for any little one who loves snow!

El copo de nieve

This is, admittedly, a Christmas/holiday book. Even still, the story is so sweet and it’s all about snowflakes, I decided to add it here too. With fun lyrical text, and beautiful illustrations, this will soon be a winter classic for families. 

Froggy se Viste

I think all kids love snow as much as Froggy does! This is an amazing book for preparing your children to bundle up before going out to play in the snow. You can practice your Spanish winter clothing words as Froggy gets ready to go outside, and it is a perfect bilingual picture book for your winter collection!

Diez Maneras de Escuchar la Nieve

Next up on the list is this lovely story about a girl who adventures out on a snowy day and observes all the beautiful ways to hear snow! With a lovely granddaughter/grandmother relationship, this is a special book for the winter season. I love that it is in Spanish and English too!

El Invierno

This is a great Spanish winter book for beginners who are learning Spanish at home! It has a simple sentence structure that beginning learners and families can read together, and talks all about the wonders of winter. I love the real life images in this book, and the easy to read sentence structures.

El mitón

Hands down, this is one of my absolute favorite bilingual winter books for young children. I love learning about the different woodland animals, and their sweet journey to find warmth and shelter in a super stretch mitten. It is so easy to create hands-on Spanish activities connected to this awesome book too!

Me gusta la nieve

If you’re looking for a winter book in Spanish that is also educational, this is it! I love the lyrical Spanish text and the ending STEM lessons for kids about why snow is important.

Irene, la valiente

I’m so glad that this classic children’s book was translated into Spanish! Irene goes up against a powerful winter storm to make sure that her mother’s hard work gets delivered on time. This is a great winter book for any child that loves adventure.

Nieve en la Jungla

Okay, technically these polar bears travel to the jungle where it is warm BUT there is still snow and a winter theme in the story. This is such a sweet bilingual children’s book about friendship, new challenges, and the importance of finding connection anywhere you go.

La Casita Bajo Tierra

This is a great bilingual chapter book for kids who love to read! This story is all about snow, and how a little hare family moved to their new and beloved home only a year ago. I love that this is an original Spanish book, and it is a great way to introduce your children to Spanish that is spoken in Spain. My children absolutely love this story, and it is the beginning of a four part series! This book would be perfect to read to your bilingual children all winter long.

Mi oso grande, mi oso pequeño y yo

Oh my goodness, I love this book. It has the sweetest story about a young girl and her two favorite bears. Enjoy a Spanish story about sledding, winter, and the love shared by a daughter and her papá bear.


If you have young children who want a sturdy bilingual winter book for their home library, this one belongs on your shelf! This story is easy to read for beginning learners, and is a short and sweet read for your bilingual toddlers. It’s a great book to introduce snow, winter, and the joys of the season.
