Beginner spanish books?

I`m halfway on my tree now, and i really love the app, but i would be nice to learn by doing something else too. I really love reading, and i think that is the best way for me to learn a new language. Would really appreciate it if someone left any book names in the comments.

These are easy children's books that are narrated while you read along and enjoy the animated illustrations. They won't keep you on the edge of your seat, but they are great for listening and expanding your vocabulary when you are a beginner. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCE1049BCC2C78B97

You could also consider reading something in Spanish that you've already read in English so you can follow what's happening and gradually pick up on words without needing to reach for the dictionary every time (which can get cumbersome). The first book I read in Spanish was El León, La Bruja y El Ropero and I'm now on the Harry Potter series. p.s. Looking at that apostrophe I think you're writing on Spanish keyboard... if you want to use the normal apostrophe so that you can contract words without being marked wrong in the lessons, the '-' key is the apostrophe when in Spanish mode :)

It might be a bit challenging but one of the first books in Spanish I got in my hand was "Historia de una gaviota y del gato que le enseñó a volar". From Luis Sepulveda. There were quite some words I needed to look up and parts I needed to read several tomes, but all by all I found it light enough. Even when here and there I had some difficulties, I found I could understand most of it out of the context as well.

I still have the book and I plan to read it once again when I feel a bit more comfortable. Either way, I you fond a good book yourself, don't hesitate to share it!
