i go on a mission trip each year to Guatamala and every year we take the children stuffed animals, but i was thinking it might be nice to take them some books written in spanish. Most of these children have spinal deformities and will be spending alot of time in bed after surgery so i thought this might be benifitcal for the children. I cannot spend a ton of monye becasue i have to pay for the trip myself but i have been looking at places like dollar general and yard sales but i am not finding much, any suggestions? thanks

try ebay they might have something or else see if your library has some books they could discard, tell them why you need them, they might have a literacy program that could give you some books.

Also try www.amazon.com thy have lots of books in different languages. And I remember seeing spanish books there too. www.buy.com might have some too, but I'm not sure about that. www.creiglist.com is like a yard-sale I'm sure you will find some there. Or just type spanish books / or the name of the book you are looking for: my fair lady in spanish into google search. I hope you will find what you are looking for.
