This is an annotated list of current titles recommended for purchase.
I appreciated the short descriptions in Spanish and English and the recommended ages for reading aloud and sharing. The selections range from books for infants and toddlers to picture books for older children.

Each book was given the same rigorous review for cultural authenticity, language, translation and appeal to children that the committee gives its English language and bilingual recommendations.
