Chapter Books in Spanish

Yesterday, Carla, a reader, asked on the MommyMaestra Facebook page:

"Do you have any suggestions for good beginner chapter books in Spanish? Not sure if my oldest is ready for them yet but would like to introduce them. Gracias!"

A couple of you gave some great suggestions:

And I have a few more, too:

The Castillo de la Lectura series - Written by native Spanish speakers, this series is available in color-coded levels according to your child's reading level. It is really well done! We have a whole bunch listed in La Librería. Browse through them.

The Torre de Papel series -  Another great collection, again, written by Spanish-speaking authors and also available according to reading level.

Good luck, Carla!

Con mucho cariño....


  1. Thank you for these great suggestions! I'll let you know how she likes them =)

  2. It's always good to hear about kids' books written by Spanish-speakers instead of just translated from the English.

  3. They are sometimes really hard to find, though. But I do think that some translations are excellent. It usually depends on the translator...

  4. Any recommendations especially for boys? My boys are 4 and 5 and love to listen to chapter books. They loved Roald Dahl, and they are loving the Boxcar children (in English). I'd love to find a series that is boy friendly and age appropriate (not too scary).
