5 Bilingual Children’s Books to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

February is the month of love and I wanted to share a list of great bilingual and Spanish children’s books you can read to your kids to talk about Valentine’s Day — which is less than two weeks away — and just love and other feelings in general.

Some of the books on this list are strictly about Valentine’s, but some others are about relationships, friendships and family. So you can have a little bit of everything to read to your little ones.

El primer San Valentín de Clifford — Like most kids, mine love Clifford and this adventure is as fun as usual. Join Clifford before he became the Big Red Dog as he gets into all sorts of trouble on his first Valentine’s Day.

Dora quiere mucho a Boots — Another well known characters that both my children like. In this book about Valentine’s Day, Dora tells kids just how much her adorable little monkey, Boots.

¡Feliz Día de la Amistad, Gus! — Gus wants to make a Valentine for his mom, but it’s turning out to be harder than he thought!

Before you were here, mi amor —  A tender story about how a family lovingly prepares for the birth of a child. I love reading this book to my kids because it allows me to explain how we prepared for them as a family and how excited we were to finally meet them!

El ladrón de estrellas — A super cute love story about what a little boy is willing to do to show how much he cares for a little girl. A great opportunity to talk about friendship and the value of friends with your kids.

What books do you read to your kids about Valentine’s Day?
