Books for Kids
Books to read before, during and after your trip to Barcelona
Barcelona is a wonderful city to explore and a family-friendly destination. There are endless educational opportunities here with Columbus, Gaudi, Picasso and more. So the book titles are really endless. Below are my favorites.
Follow the Dream: The Story of Christopher Columbus
by Peter Sis
A beautiful picture book showcasing the life of Columbus.
Picasso and the Girl with a Ponytail
by Laurence Anholt
A fictional picture book about a little girl who meets Picasso. A great introduction for kids to this world-renowned artist. Also check out other famous artists in the series.
Who Was Pablo Picasso?
by True Kelley
I love all the books in the "Who Was..." series, and this one is no exception. This is a great biography for young readers and a great resource so your young travelers will know all about a person they are likely to hear about while in Barcelona.
Building on Nature: The Life of Antoni Gaudi
by Rachel Victoria Rodriguez
Yay! A book for children about Gaudi. If you're visiting Barcelona, you will be immersed in wonderful displays of his architecture style and genius. This book is a great way to help kids appreciate even more what they will see.
Mission Barcelona: A Scavenger Hunt Adventure
by Catherine Aragon
I love these scavenger hunt books (and they're available for a number of cities around the world). They help kids to search for details throughout their visit and learn about what they are seeing. A scavenger hunt is a great way to keep your young travel engaged.
