Top Spanish Magazines For Kids
This award-winning American children’s magazine has gotten a Spanish language update! Magazines are adorably illustrated and easy to read, making them a perfect introduction to the Spanish language for young children.
Stories, puzzles, and activities are all included and text comes in both Spanish and English languages. We love the Hidden Pictures.
This is my favorite magazine but it does top out at about 8 years old. the whole magazine appears in Spanish and when you flip it backwards it’s in English. It’s a nice way to practice vocabulary in both languages for beginning learners too.
These magazines are translated from English and there are times when I don’t love the translations or the topics don’t seem super culturally relevant to Latin American experiences.
