CATAVENTO is a bookstore and the first children's book subscription club in Portuguese in the United States and Canada, it was created with the aim of offering quality children's books to Brazilian and multicultural families living abroad.

Knowing that reading is one of the pillars for language development, we are careful to select interesting titles that arouse and cultivate interest in learning the Heritage Language, focusing on current topics, fun stories and books that will increase and enrich the children's vocabulary, as well as introducing a bit of Brazilian culture.  

 

We offer new titles monthly, and for that we have partnerships with the best Brazilian publishers such as Companhia das Letrinhas, Brinque Book, Rocco, Gato Leitor, Pulo do Gato, Moderna, Melhoramentos, Jujuba, Aletria, oZé, Pequena Zahar, Carochinha, Intrinsica, FTD, Panda Books, Global, among others. We also offer titles published independently by expatriate authors that address relevant topics such as Brazilian culture, multicultural families and the Portuguese language.

Feel free to get in touch with any questions, suggestions, book recommendations, among others. We are here to help!

ABOUT THE FOUNDER

My name is Michelle Rolinski, I was born in São Paulo/Capital and I have lived in the United States for 12 years. I hold a law degree in Brazil and a MBA in International Business in the US. 

 

CATAVENTO BOOKS was founded to incentive the learning of Brazilian Portuguese through reading. There are several Brazilian and Multicultural families living in the US and Canada that are trying to pass the Portuguese language to their kids there were born abroad but they find it challenge since there are a lack of resources.

The vision I have for CATAVENTO goes beyond the sale of children's books in Portuguese, the intention is to create a channel to help Brazilian and multicultural families in the United States e Canada, like mine, to keep and pass their Heritage Language.
