This is a beginning reading program in Spanish by Scott Foresman. Maybe you can just buy the student books.

Here's a list of titles from the Wright Group: http://www.wrightgroup.com/download/lit/sunshine_spanish_title_list.pdf

Which I found on this page: <http://www.wrightgroup.com/index.php/programsummary'isbn=007603447X>

All of these are companies in the USA. Hope some of this is of use.

Yo le compraría libros normales y corrientes, en vez de esos escritos como si fueran para retrasados mentales. Consíguele El principito, Platero y yo, Alicia en el país de las maravillas, u otros clásicos que son tanto para niños como para adultos.

No need to go any farther than your local mall. Stores like Barnes & Noble have all kinds of books for children written in Spanish. If you´re looking for cheap, used books try eBay. Amazon.com has both new, used and auctioned books written in Spanish.

I don´t know exactly what you mean by written in Castillian Spanish. I don´t know if that age group is going to notice the difference. I´ve read some books that were written (or should I say translated into Spanish) from popular Amercan children´s series like Junie B Jones, GooseBumps, Scooby Doo, Fear Street, Nancy Drew, et. al. You know immediately from the conversations that the characters in these books are American children and that the dialogs are translated. Is that what you´re trying to avoid? Are you looking for Spanish book by Spanish authors rather than books translated from the orignal author´s native language..

By "castellano" she means Spanish. Spain had many different dialects of modern Latin, and one of them, spoken in the north east of Burgos in the 10th century, in Castilla, spread to other regions and eventually became the official language in most of Spain. It wasn't until the end of the 15th and beginning of the 16th centuries when the word "español" began to be used as a synonym of "castellano".

Gracias a todos por sus respuestas y sugerencias. Si, mi hija tiene 3 annos. No tiene que leer todavia, pero tiene el interes en aprender, y yo le quisiera proveer con la oportunidad de empezar. Si yo se que haya libros para ninnos en la biblioteca, y tomamos ventaja de eso a menudo. Pero la mayoria de los libros convienen mejor a leerlos yo a ella. Lo que buscaba era libros mas apropriados para que mi hija lea.
Muchas gracias a todos smile

Valerie,
Thank you for the list of titles smile When I want to the site you gave me, I don't know if they were only selling class sets or what, but most of the kids' books seemed to be $25, which is pretty steep for a children's book, let alone a basic primer, and they were charging $90 for vocabulary cards!
Am I missing something?
Thanks so much for your help
ME
