Features of the Boxcar Children Spanish Chapter Books

These Spanish chapter books are an excellent choice for language learners.

  • They have basic vocabulary, much of which is familiar to Spanish learners.
  • Short sentences and simple sentence structure make the text easy to read.
  • There are very few idioms and little figurative language.
  • Descriptions are short, concrete and use common adjectives.
  • There is plenty of clear, simple dialog in these Spanish chapter books.
  • The simple sentence structure means that the pronoun references are very clear.
  • Kids love these kind characters, the independent (yet safe) life they lead, and their adventures.
  • Kids read one book after another; the true test of a good story.

Children read hundreds of books as they grow-up. For language learners, it is important that these include Spanish language originals, rich in authentic language and culture. However, there is also a place in a child’s library and learning for accessible books that instill a love of reading. I am happy that Open Road Español is publishing the Boxcar Children books in Spanish because they do just that.
