Bilingual Spanish Books About Love

Love should not just be celebrated and expressed on special holidays like Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, or Father's Day.  Love should be a part of our everyday lives through, conversations, actions, affection, and yes books.  As a Latina mom with a love of reading and books, here are some of my daughter and my personal favorite books about love.

Top Bilingual Children's Books About Love

1. El amor es / Love Is - Edición bilingüe

As a spiritual Latina mom, it's important that my child grows up with an understanding of God's great love.  While I wouldn't consider myself religious, I love this book and the faith based message it brings. 

El amor es / Love Is

“Love is patient, love is kind.” These familiar words from the Bible begin one of its most beloved and recognized passages. Love Is brings the text of 1 Corinthians 13 to life through an illustrative exploration of God’s greatest gift to us.

Critically acclaimed artist Paola Escobar delivers beautiful, nature-filled illustrations , reminding us that love is a constant positive force in the lives of those touched by it–from beginning to end, through good times and tough times.

2. Besos de sol, abrazos de luna Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs 

My daughter was gifted this book after my father (her abuelo) passed away.  It's a beautiful book that reminds us that love can be found everywhere and can be experienced in unexpected ways.  It's also available in full English version, Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs. 

 

No matter how far apart we are, I will always find ways to tell you I love you. Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs is a beautiful picture book with a simple but powerful message: love lasts forever. Lyrical writing and delightful illustrations provide soothing bedtime reading for any child. 

The book is also ideal for supporting children through grief, separation anxiety, divorce, illness or other traumatic situations, by wrapping them in a warm and comforting emotional security blanket and opening a dialogue on the nature of love. Even when loved ones cannot be with us, we can feel their presence through our deep connections to the natural world. Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs has received glowing testimonials from parents, librarians, social workers, teachers, hospice caregivers...and most importantly, kids.

3. ¡me Gusta Cómo Soy! / I Like Myself!

It's so important to teach kids about the importance of self love.  How can we love others if we don't begin to love ourselves?  I love, love, love this book.  The main character is a funny, beautiful, and charismatic little girl that celebrates ALL of who she is.  It's a great book to get kids talking about self esteem and building confidence.  It's also available in only English version, I like Myself.

"High on energy and imagination, this ode to self-esteem encourages kids to appreciate everything about themselves—inside and out. Messy hair? Beaver breath? So what! Here's a little girl who knows what really matters. At once silly and serious, Karen Beaumont's joyous rhyming text and David Catrow's vibrant illustrations unite in a book that is sassy, soulful . . . and straight from the heart."

4. Te Quiero Más 

Adoro este libro.  I love this book, especially for new moms with little ones.  It makes a perfect baby shower gift.  It's one that will grow with you and your child.  It's written from both mom and child perspective and can get your little one involved.  It's also available in English only version, I Love You More.

 

 

"Experience the bestseller that has sparked the conversation of love around the world!

I love you mightier than the mightiest wind ever blew.
I love you fuller than the fullest moon you ever knew.
I love you brighter than the brightest star ever shown.
I love you more, so much more than you've ever known.

This cleverly conceived flip story, which ends in the middle and starts from either side, will show you what love looks like from both a child and a parent's perspective. With a simple, touching story, rhyme and rhythm, and vibrant childlike illustrations, this book is a timeless gift you will share again and again."

5. LA AMISTAD QUE NECESITO: COMO DARME BONDAD Y CARIÑO A MI MISMO 

 

Another great book about self love.  Gabi Garcia is a licensed professional counselor and author.  We love her books as they help our children open up about their feelings and emotions...something that I was never taught to do growing up Latina.  It's also available in all English version, The Friend I  Need.

 

"The pressures they feel are real. Unfortunately, so is the negative self-talk that can sometimes follow when they make mistakes or when emotions are strong. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Most children have probably spent time in school or at home learning how to be good friends to others, but what about learning to be good friends to themselves?

The Friend I Need helps children understand that the same qualities they look for in a friend— kindness, support, understanding, they can offer to themselves when they’re having a hard time."

6. Amor (Spanish Edition)

This is a beautiful book!  One of our favorites from Matt de la Peña (Last Stop on Market Street).  This book takes you on a journey of Love from birth through life.  A must in my opinion for every home library and makes a beautiful gift.   It's also available in all English version, LOVE.

"In this heartfelt celebration of love, Newbery Medal-winning author Matt de la Peña and bestselling illustrator Loren Long depict the many ways we experience this universal bond, which carries us from the day we are born throughout the years of our childhood and beyond. With a lyrical text that's soothing and inspiring, this tender tale is a needed comfort and a new classic that will resonate with readers of every age."

"Using a range of images from the World of Eric Carle, and featuring the Very Hungry Caterpillar, this special gift book gives all the reasons why someone special makes the world a better and brighter place."

Final Thoughts on Bilingual Spanish Books About Love

In English, Spanish, or any language, LOVE is the most powerful thing that we can teach our kids.  While books like these help show different expressions of love towards ourselves, others, and life around us, it is when we experience and show love that makes a true difference in children.  Like this list?  Check out My daughter's favorite books about love written when she was younger but with equally amaziing books :)
