Books About Los Reyes Magos or Three Kings in English and Spanish

Books About Los Reyes Magos or Three Kings in English and Spanish

In many Latino & Catholic centric countries Christmas is not over until El Dia de Reyes or Three Kings Day.  Each celebrates in their own way like in Mexico they make a Rosca de Reyes, in Argentina, kids write a letter to the three kings and put it inside their shoes by their bed, in Puerto Rico, they celebrate La Vispera de Reyes and grass is put in a shoe box by the tree. 

However you celebrate El Dia de Reyes, these books will help you share their story with your child.

Three Kings Day - Dia de Reyes Mago

I like that this is a simple book for kids with actual photographs that help tell the story of the Three Kings.  Perfect for a child just starting to read in English or Spanish.

"Three Kings Day is a holiday that is celebrated in Spain, Mexico, and many Latin American countries. Learn all about Three Kings Day with this bilingual book highlighting the customs and traditions of this festive holiday. It is a special day that honors the arrival of the Three Kings (Wise Men) to Bethlehem after the birth of baby Jesus on Christmas Day. It is celebrated on January 6th. Children will learn about the meaning of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, along with customs like leaving hay out for camels and receiving small toys inside their shoes!"


The holiday is described in brief, easy-to-read text, presented in both English and Spanish.

Continue the celebration with 10 bonus coloring pages!

 

Los Tres Reyes Magos

This book is in Spanish with large text and vibrant images sure to catch your little ones attention.

"Este libro te ofrece la historia de los tres Reyes Magos, hombres muy sabios que, dejándose guiar por sus conocimientos, salieron de viaje, sabiendo que un gran prodigio iba a tener lugar lejos de sus reinos. Un relato lleno de magia adaptado para los pequeños lectores."

The Story of the Three Wise Kings

 

This is a beautifully illustrated and classic book.  Although not available in bilingual or Spanish it is too nice of a book to not include in this book list.

"Tomie dePaola’s beloved 1983 classic returns to print just in time for the holiday season!

Three wise men of the East, having seen a new star symbolizing the birth of a great king, follow the star to Bethlehem where they present gifts to the newborn Jesus. This beautiful rendition of the well-known tale is sure to delight young readers."

Los Reyes Magos

A beautiful pop up book in Spanish that kids of all ages can enjoy.

Los Reyes Magos

Entrad en los escenarios pop-up de uno de los últimos títulos de la colección Minipops: la tradición de los Reyes Magos. Una visión moderna y sintética de los cuentos clásicos más populares.

 

A super cute illustrated book, though if you want a more biblical story book this is probably not the one to get as it presents the wise men in a more fun Santa like way.
Un libro muy bonito, pero si buscas un libro mas biblico con la historia de los reyes magos, probablemente no es el libro adecuado.
"Se acerca el gran día y los reyes magos están atareados. A uno no le caben todos los regalos en el camello, otro se entrena para subir escaleras sin resoplar, y el tercero sufre porque se les hará tarde. ¿Cómo puede ser que aún estén así con la experiencia que tienen?"

Los Tres Reyes Magos

This is a cute bilingual book for little ones to learn colors and basics elements surrounding the Three Kings.  Note that it does not tell the story.

"Introducing Spanish/English bilingualism, Lil’ Libros encourage parents to read to their children at the earliest age―focusing on subjects they are familiar with, while making it fun and rewarding for both parent and child.

Let's celebrate the night when the Three Wise Men following the star to Bethlehem arrived with treasured gifts for Baby Jesus. Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar brought with them gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Gold represented Baby Jesus' royal standing, frankincense his divine birth, and myrrh his mortality."

Ya Llegan Los Reyes Magos

"This beautifully illustrated poem voices the excitement of Three Kings' Day from a child's perspective. "

 

Un Coquí de Borinquén Con Los Reyes a Belén

A fun story told in Español about a frog that accompanies the Three Kings on their journey touching on different places.  Winner of the International Latino Book Awards, this one is a winner.

"¡Mantenga viva la tradición de los Tres Reyes para esta y futuras generaciones de niños boricuas!

"Un coquí de Boriquén con los Reyes a Belén" es la historia de un coquí mágico que acompañó a una niña puertorriqueña a la primera Navidad. El cantar del coquí ayuda a los Magos a encontrar al Niño Jesús. En agradecimiento, los Reyes le prometen anualmente buscar a cada niño de su país, en o fuera de Puerto Rico, siempre que la melodía de un coquí los llame."
