Thank you, Gabriella from NBC News, for including us in your amazing list of Latino-owned businesses to support in 2021. CHAU, LUNA is a project that was launched with my own savings in 2016 and it's slowly growing word-of-mouth and through business events, but we don't advertise much (yet). So it's a great honor when parents, librarians, teachers and journalists recommend us. ¡Muchísimas gracias!
We are sooooo excited about this new school year!!! Despite the uncertainty of how everything will unfold, we know it can't be that bad if we have good books to read. We wish our families a happy, healthy, and fun filled school year! https://chauluna.com/collections/new-in-2021
A collection that celebrates our amazing dads!
And THIS is happening! Our first in-person book fair in over a year will be at PS 9, in Brooklyn. Tears of joy are rolling down my cheeks 🤩 June 10 and 11, from 2-4pm. Venmo available!
Una historia que nos encanta... And a great one for story time!
Climate change, explained by Greta Thunberg.
Una carta de amor a Puerto Rico. Una historia que ahonda en lo que significan el hogar y la familia.
Los mejores libros informativos son aquellos que nos atrapan con la primera página. Ronda nocturna, escrito por Nicolás Schuff y Paula Fernández, e ilustrado por Cynthia Alonso, es uno de esos libros.

Leeles en tu idioma/Read to Them in Spanish

Visually stimulating, thought provoking and culturally relevant children’s books that are a pleasure to read. Our original and authentic Spanish-language books come from established publishers in Spain and Latin America to keep the language diverse. We curate the material to offer award-winning titles, translated classics, renowned authors and a selection of nonfiction books for school and home libraries.

We believe that reading is fun when the book is good: when it speaks to us, when it takes us places, and it changes us ever so slightly. We also believe that children are discerning readers. In that spirit, our mission is to offer a selection of books that kids of all ages will find fascinating. We want to make reading in Spanish irresistible!

We also want to make these books accessible to everyone. You can find our books online (chauluna.com) or at our showroom in Brooklyn, NY (495 Third Avenue; by appointment only). We partner with schools the following ways: we curate Spanish-language book fairs that also work as fundraisers; we build school and classroom libraries; and we bring a Book Club/Club de Lectura that keeps the Spanish alive at home. Contact us to learn more.

Let’s work together to nurture the next generation of bilingual Spanish speakers!
