Q: What is the age range for the books? Can I select the age?Asked by Mariela D., May 2020
We focus on picture books, so they're great for kids from 2-3 to about 7. Although lots of people buy and love them for babies, too! If you have any other questions, let us know. ¡Gracias!
The books are great and I’ve loved each one, however so far it seems that most of the books are translated. When I subscribed I hoped to receive books from either Spain or Latin America, in other words, books written originally in Spanish.
Thank you so much for your review and your business! The coronavirus pandemic has made importing books challenging, but we’re looking forward to once again sourcing most of our books from Spain and Latin America in 2021.
Every single book will interest your little readers or listeners. Wonderfully picked! :) Perfect surprise once a month for the kids and parents in it’s beautiful unique gift wraps.
I hesitate to "take someone's word for it" when it comes to books, and I like to select them myself. But, I knew if I was going to dig for the best Spanish books, it would be even more time-consuming than the selection process for English books (being a native English speaker with Spanish as my second language and being in the U.S. where the selection would be good but not necessarily tap into all the great Spanish children's lit that's out there globally). Sol Book Box has delivered on their promise to unearth gems that, in some cases, aren't even available here in the U.S. and are clearly popular choices around the world. It's like having a Spanish-speaking pen pal for my young son, and my Spanish has improved as I've had more opportunities to use it. There are nights when our 17-month-old son selects ONLY Spanish books off the shelf before bedtime. This amazes us! Fantastic, thought-provoking and funny books. The price is right. THANK YOU, Sol. Highly recommend this program to other families!
Our family just got our first month of Sol Book Box. The kids were super excited with the contents. The book on Tito Puentes brought back childhood memories that I shared with the kids. We played the great instruments that came with the box in which we also added a drum that we had in the house with the flute. The kids have read the book numerous times and have asked me to play real salsa music from Tito Puentes. I certainly would recommend Sol Book Box to my friends and family.
I felt that it took a while to get my box together. I was expecting more than one book for what I paid for. The packaging was gorgeous! The story was okay but didn't blow me away.
Hi Maria, so sorry to hear you were disappointed! We do ship media mail to keep shipping costs for our customers as low as possible, which may help explain the delay in receiving your box. We also import very high quality books from all over the world, but are sorry to hear the story wasn't for you! Thanks for giving us a try.
I purchased a Sol Book Box for my nieces last month and they absolutely loved it. Their smiles said it all!
It was then I realized that Sol Book Box was about offering a positive reading EXPERIENCE to children. The contents in Sol Book Box open doors for engaging and fun reading. As a former elementary school teacher and a bilingual myself, I can attest to the value and effectiveness of interactive and memorable learning experiences for children and adults. Sol Book Box really works!
