Felice y La Llorona (Felice and the Wailing Woman) 

The 12-year-old daughter of La Llorona vows to free her mother and reverse the curses that have plagued the magical town of Tres Leches in this delightfully sweet and spellbinding adventure.

Flora la fresca y el arte de la amistad (Flora La Fresca & the Art of Friendship)

The first book in an illustrated middle grade series about a Panamanian American girl who uses humor and a little mischief to navigate her best friend moving away and her sister’s overbearing and all-consuming quince preparations.


Sed (Thirst)

Minni lives in the poorest part of Mumbai, where access to water is limited and the communal taps have long lines, but in the high-rise building where she works, water streams out of every faucet; there’s even a rooftop swimming pool – and one of the water mafia bosses. Now she must decide to expose him and risk her job – or even her life. 

Amari y Los Hermanos de la Nochee (Amari and the Night Brothers)

Amari Peters never stopped believing her missing brother, Quinton, is alive – not even when the police told her otherwise. So when she finds a ticking briefcase in his closet containing a nomination for a summer tryout at the Bureau of Supernatural Affairs, she’s certain the secretive organization holds the key to locating Quinton. 

El canto de los elefantes (Singing with Elephants) 

Cuban-born 11-year-old Oriol lives in Santa Barbara, California, where she struggles to belong. But when she discovers that someone is threatening the life of a baby elephant at her parents’ clinic, Oriol is determined to take action, learning it will take courage and strength to do what she thinks is right – even if it means keeping secrets from those she loves.

Las guerras de los Miércoles (The Wednesday Wars) 

Every Wednesday afternoon in 1967, all of seventh-grader Holling Hoodhood’s classmates go to either Catechism or Hebrew school. He stays in Mrs. Baker’s classroom where they read the plays of William Shakespeare together, learning the value of the world he lives in.

Embark now on a thrilling journey with your young readers using these Spanish middle grade books to discover magical worlds, brave heroes, and unforgettable adventures.
