SI Online Book Fair - 3/22 to 4/2
Fri, Mar 19 5:23pm

Dear Escondido Community,

We are excited to announce that our annual Spanish Book Fair will be online this year, starting this coming week from March 22nd to April 2nd - 2 weeks! 

Parents, teachers, and the SI community will get 20% discounts off retail along with free shipping, and 5% of the total sales will be donated to the Escondido PTA.  

Our book provider, Lectorum, has a huge selection of high-quality Spanish books, including native Spanish books and Spanish translations of popular English books. They only serve schools and libraries, so this is a fantastic opportunity for parents and other members of the SI community to get access to this wonderful resource -- but only for two weeks!

To shop for books and access our discounts, just follow these steps:

  1. Go to
  2. Create an account
  3. Select books to buy and at checkout enter Escondido in the box on the right labeled “Redeem a Gift Certificate or Coupon”
  4. Select Apply. You should now see a credit for all shipping costs.
  5. Buy as many times as you like

All books will be shipped to Escondido and delivered to your kids’ classrooms soon after Spring break.

Stay tuned for more information regarding Teacher Wish Lists and book recommendations from our Escondido librarian, Nina Bailey, and teachers. 

For reference, I’m attaching the Lectorum 2020 Catalog and 2021 Supplemental Catalog where you can see the full inventory of books along with descriptions and pricing. Note that the lower pricing in red is our discounted rate:
