The idea for Sol Book Box came to me after my daughter picked out the same five Spanish books at the library (the ones I had memorized!) to bring home yet again. I desperately wished we had a bigger selection of libros, at the library and at our local bookstores. When I first dreamed up the idea to bring Spanish children’s books to bilingual families, it stemmed mostly from my own passion to make sure my kid(s) were raised to be bilingual. So many of the opportunities I’ve enjoyed (career-wise and personally) have come around because of the languages I speak.
Every single Sol Book Box book is carefully chosen, and my hope is that it’s a seed parents plant at home with their children. I believe strongly in the power of reading, and what I want most is for parents and kids to love to read en español too, and to celebrate the beauty of the Spanish language together.
