The Children’s Book Committee’s Best Spanish Language Book List 2019

The Children’s Book Committee and Center for Children’s Literature is delighted to share with you:

Best Books of the Year - Spanish Ed. - Spanish Cover Best Books of the Year - Spanish Ed. - English Cover
Los mejores libros infantiles en español del año 2019 para libros infantiles publicados o traducidos en 2018 The Best Children’s Picture Books of the Year in Spanish 2019 for Picture Books Published or Translated in 2018

This list was created by native and non-native Spanish speaking members of the Children’s Book Committee as well as employees, alumnae, and professors of Bank Street College. Each book received the same vigorous review as works submitted for our “Best Books of the Year” list in English. Click here for a downloadable list

We will begin reviewing again for our 2020 list in March. At that time, Spanish language picture books either written or translated in 2019 can be sent for review and possible inclusion. Send to Cynthia Weill, Center for Children’s Literature, 5th Floor Library, Bank Street College of Education, 610 West 112th Street, New York, New York  10025.

If you are a Spanish speaker, have a background in children’s books and are interested in reviewing for the Children’s Book Committee, please contact
