Baker and Taylor
Starting on the main Search Screen, locate the Filter By section in the gray box on the right hand side of the screen. Click on the Language box and then click on the Drop Down arrow next to it. In the Drop Down box, click on Spanish. From there, you can filter in any parameters you wish. In the extended view of a title, look under edition. If it says TRA that means it is a translation. It may also say “Bilingual” in the edition field. Once you have done your search using the filters, you may even narrow you list further by using the Guided Navigation feature in the green box on the left hand side of the Search Result Screen.You can click on Audience, then click on a grade level. It tells you right next to the grade level how many titles are in that category. Baker & Taylor also offers lists under Selection Lists. There is a Spanish list under Selection Lists > CATS (Children's and Teen Services) Categories > Spanish Language > Children's Fiction - Spring 2009 (Espanol), Selection Lists > Pub / Espanol Categories >, Selection Lists > Schools - Never Out of Stock Express Categories > Spanish Language, and Selection Lists > Spanish Language Categories > Children's.
