Many kids in the US are learning Spanish as the 2nd language. I have been trying to collect books and reading resources for kids to read in both English and Spanish. They are great for both English speaking and Spanish speaking kids who are trying to study the other language. Here are what I found so far. I welcome any suggestions if you know a good digital resource for English and Spanish bilingual reading, such as apps, websites.
