16 Great Children’s Books About South America

I don’t want our kids to forget our life there so I did some research and found 16 Great Children’s Books about South America to add to our home library.

 

I have found that books make the world seem a little bit more reach and relatable to us. In a time when there is so much division between color and race it’s important to give our children a global worldview. So they don’t think every Hispanic person is eats tacos and there isn’t a difference between an Argentinian and a Mexican.

I was born in Mexico but I had the joy of spending close to a decade in South America with my children and husband. I love talking to my kids about my Mexican heritage but I also want them to know there is a beautiful world out there interwoven with beautiful colors, languages and traditions.

It’s Hispanic Heritage Month so what better time then now to celebrate! Make sure you check out the awesome giveaways below.

Living in South America

We loved living in Quito, Ecuador and regularly miss our friends and life there so hopefully as we add these collections of books to our home library our kids will remember some of the beautiful memories we lived. Living in Quito, Ecuador was not very different from living in the U.S. Yes there are differences but there were also so many things that were similar. I asked my kids after arriving in the U.S. what some of the similarities they noticed.

The things that were similar is both countries use the American dollar. You can find Spanish speakers and English speakers in both countries.

Some of the differences were children and adults always greet everyone before speaking to them or when coming in contact with them. Our kids grew up with a guard. You can always find a guard outside our home, at school or at the stores 24/7. Our vacations were things like hiking up volcanoes, walking through the Amazon jungle, or gliding through the cloud forest.
