Vanessa is an entrepreneur, educator, and mamá to three bilingual daughters. She is the founder of both Sol Book Box and BILINGUIFY!, a program to help parents connect with the fun and joy of raising bilingual kids. She is a native of Chihuahua, Mexico, and loves work at the intersection of communication and migration.

“The idea for Sol Book Box came 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 children were raised to be bilingual. So many of the opportunities I’ve enjoyed, in both my career and personal life, have been possible because of the languages I speak.”


Jeff is a writer, reader, brand builder and entrepreneur with two young children currently enrolled in (and loving) Spanish immersion schooling.

Before joining Sol Book Box, Jeff co-founded the Brooklyn-based creative agency, Mustache. Through his kids, Jeff has seen first-hand the power of a modern bilingual education, and is proud to help support that growth at home for families everywhere.

“The minute my family became a part of the bilingual scholastic community, I saw the amazing benefits of secondary language fluency, as well as the clear need to support this journey in the home. Language learning can be a beautiful, joyful, meaningful experience for children and families alike, and it is our mission and privilege to help enable that.”
