Barefoot Books in Spanish Titles (Stories)

A few days ago in one of the groups that I belong to, one lady asked if Barefoot Books sells Spanish books titles, and the answer she heard from me was a resounding “YES”. This inspired me to list down a few of the Spanish books that Barefoot Books have published. According to my Regional Manager, Laurie M., these Spanish books are at par when compared to other books that are written in Spanish. In fact, she mentioned in a phone conversation that a fellow stallholder who is from Puerto Rico is impressed with the way these books are written! Despite the fact that I can not pronounce nor understand the complete text of these stories in Spanish, I know that Barefoot Books live up to their mission of bringing exact if not almost exactly what every culture in the world has to offer to everybody. I must say that if children are learning how to speak another language, in this case Spanish, please feel free to check these books and I am sure you will get the most precise Spanish translation you could ever
