I posted this on the Children's Books forums and have had some views but no response.  I know it is a long shot but I am trying to find some children's books in Brazilian Portuguese.  They could be story books or learning books.  If you have any that you want to trade for credits or if you know of any websites where these can be purchased, I would appreciate it!

Beverly,

There is a Brasilian website called www.saraiva.com.br that is like the Brasilian B&N. It was my favorite store when I lived there! You can definitely find books there, but the shipping is pretty hefty, because it's international. Another site I've found is www.atlanticobooks.com, and they seem to be local but maybe they import books? Shipping seems to be typically 10% of the order cost.

I have a few books in Brasilian Portuguese, but am not sure what you're looking for. Can you expand on the types of books?
