Nevertheless, it is never late! I am thrilled to share with you Booklandia a subscription based service that mails directly to your home Bilingual and Spanish Children’s Book.
As a Mommy raising a bilingual child, I am happily pleased and content with the service. It’s new, it’s different and innovative. I love the gift wrapped books, but as a parent I would also like to know which books he’s receiving. If he happens to receive one that we already own we can get a $7 refund.
But, who doesn’t love a surprise in the mail?
Interested? Well today is your lucky day!

I highly recommend Booklandia, and happy reading!
Oakland, CA – One homeschooling mom is making Spanish and Bilingual children’s books accessible to Spanish-speaking families and Spanish learners across the US and Canada. Maceo Cabrera Estévez created the start-up Booklandia, a monthly subscription box service of children’s books in Spanish and Spanish/English from her home in East Oakland, CA.
Maceo’s first language is Spanish although she was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY by Cuban immigrant parents. She has always read in both English and Spanish and wanted to instill that love for reading in her own kids. “My kids’ bookshelves are overflowing with books but not many are in Spanish. I didn’t want them to read translations of popular books in English. There are amazing Latinx writers and illustrators in the US and all over Latin America and Spain. Why limit their experience reading in Spanish?”
For the past two years she has been a bookseller as a Barefoot Books Ambassador. Once she discovered this award-winning company published Spanish books with beautiful illustrations and strong stories with people of color, she was hooked and wanted to share these books with her community. “In the Bay Area there is a thirst for Spanish and bilingual books. When I am out selling at community events and book fairs, kids and parents alike are overjoyed to find books in Spanish. There needs to be more. If in the Bay Area, where there are plenty of Latinx and Spanish Learners who can’t find Spanish books readily, I could only imagine how difficult it is in smaller, less diverse communities.”
Customers will be able to choose plans that fit the needs of their family or as gifts. Booklandia will have 2 authentic Spanish and/or bilingual children’s books in each package. Each month the books will focus on a theme such as gratitude, families and travel. “Each book will be wrapped as a reminder that knowledge is a beautiful gift. I just want kids to really love reading in Spanish.”
