Books in Spanish for 8 Year Olds

My son is eight! (WHAAAAAA?) I’m blown away by the fact that he is now reading chapter books in Spanish so I thought I’d share some of what we’re reading at home, in case you also are looking for books in Spanish for 8 year olds, or for kids in dual language programs. 

Our Favorite Books in Spanish for 8 Year Olds

Mi Diario de aquí a allá 

A powerful book in both English and Spanish, that talks about the immigration experience from the point of view of a child who has to leave her home. 


Nate El Grande 

I love Nate! (and I think it’s important to love the books your kids are reading, since you might have to read with them!) This is a graphic novel, and my son finds it hilarious. 

Note: there are many Nate books in this series, like this one, Nate El Grande Ataca de Nuevo 

El Cocinero Raúl y el tesoro del baúl

This book follows the adventure of Raul, a cook who is a pirate but doesn’t want to fight, he just wants to cook. It is written in rhyme which is adorable, and it certainly keeps my kiddo entertained. 

Hombre Perro Series 

We recently discovered that Dog Man is available in Spanish, and we love the Hombre Perro series! This is the latest book in the series, El Hombre Perro El señor de las pulgas was just released in September 2019. 


Pasando Páginas 

Pasando Páginas is an autobiographical book by Justice Sonia Sotomayor. It talks about how books have played a special role in Justice Sotomayor’s life. It really is beautifully written and teaches kids that books are so special and they can help you overcome and get through life’s obstacles. We have it in English and SPANISH! 

You can purchase the book in English here. 


¡Solo Pregunta!

Another great book by Justice Sonia Sotomayor! Justice Sotomayor discusses how she was different when she was younger, and uses the analogy of a graden: just like different types of flowers making a garden beautiful , different types of people make the world beautiful! 

It inspires kids to ask questions and to not be afraid to be themselves, because they are unique. It is colorful and inspiring!

YOU CAN PURCHASE THE BOOK “Just Ask! Be Different, Be Brave, Be You! IN ENGLISH HERE!
