Middle School ¡Squawk Box!
Lorito Books Standing Order Plan
Keep your library’s Spanish collection current and fun with our carefully curated fiction collections!
What comes in each box?
In the fall and spring, we will send you twelve of our favorite new books. We carefully select exciting new chapter books, comics, and graphic novels from Latin America and Spain for middle grade audiences. We pay extra attention to keeping our collection diverse and balanced, so that all kinds of readers will find something they enjoy in each box. We know that many middle schoolers prefer to read what’s popular in the U.S., so many of our selections are popular translations, but we also like to include vibrant authentic literature for curious readers.
Squawk Boxes are already discounted as a collection and are not eligible for further discounts.
