Conexiones is a non-fiction book for free reading in Spanish. This book is filled with short interesting articles that will help Spanish students to understand and connect with the Spanish-speaking world. My students have enjoyed these readings and I bet yours will too. It is simple enough for levels 1 & 2 to read and it is interesting enough for all levels to pick up cultural insights in a low-stress format.

When you order Conexiones be sure to download this free book Conexiones Teacher Resources. It will help you with activities to use articles in Conexiones as whole class reading.


“The readings in Bryce´s  book excite a different kind of reader: the child who spends hours curled up with a magazine like Ranger Rick, Popular Science or National Geographic. This book rounds out a classroom library by focusing on interesting non-fiction that is comprehensible to novice learners of Spanish. Whether offered as an independent reading selection, read in small groups or part of a whole-class reading activity, these readings are a necessary complement to the fiction that is central to my classes.”

—Mike Peto, teacher and author

“Conexiones is a treasure trove of short, easy, amply-illustrated readings in Spanish about real things, places, animals, customs and history in the Spanish-speaking world, including even some general science. The book is divided into three sections: (1) readings for first-year students, (2) readings for second-year students and (3) the Diccionario cultural y geográfico de Latinoamérica, a concise eclectic encyclopedia of things, places, animals, customs and history in Latin America. To my knowledge there is nothing else available at these levels of Spanish that is comparable to either the readings or the dictionary.

Every Spanish teacher should welcome these short readings and the dictionary, which can be used in a variety of ways. Particular readings can be taught or assigned. The whole book can be available to students to pick and choose what they are interested in reading. The dictionary can be a source of useful information at any time. We are fortunate that Conexiones exists. It should be an essential part of every Spanish teacher’s repertoire. Ideally, every Spanish student should have a copy.”

“Wow! Conexiones provides an essential resource of interesting and accessible Spanish articles for both teachers and language learners! Teachers have the option of including the reader in our FVR libraries, using specific readings as a complementary part of the year’s curriculum, or … both!”

—Diane Chamberlain
Spanish teacher and professor, Laramie, Wyoming

    “We 100% plan on using Conexiones next year because it’s REAL and INTERESTING. Urban kids need real and interesting materials that are in accessible Spanish. They do not buy in to make-believe. Conexiones has something for everyone! Thank you for providing this to us–from the bottom of my heart!” —Meg Vernon

  3. Bryce Hedstrom

    I return to this non-fiction resource year after year. Perfect for students who love geography, animals, ancient civilizations and more! Great for free reading, springboard for projects or for fast-finishers. Enjoy!
