Bilingual Books for Kids
The Cat in the Hat/El Gato Ensombrerado (The Cat in the Hat Spanish Edition): Bilingual Edition

To begin with, you can’t go wrong with classic Dr. Seuss! From Amazon:

This all-new rhymed bilingual edition of The Cat in the Hat is the perfect introduction for Spanish-speaking children to the wonderful world of Dr. Seuss.

Now in a larger size trim to accommodate the English and the Spanish text, the new translation was written by Puerto Rican poet and children’s book author Georgina Lázaro, and by Teresa Mlawer—one of the most respected figures in Spanish publishing. This new rhymed translation retains the fun of the original text, so that both Spanish-speakers and English-speakers can enjoy reading Dr. Seuss story in two languages.

Next is one of my favorite stories. In addition to learning Spanish, kids will learn the value of friendship, as well the importance of being yourself. This bilingual book is a must read for kids!!
