Tomorrow is El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Day of the Child/Day of the Book)

Tomorrow my students and I will celebrate El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day). It is a yearly celebration that "emphasizes the importance of advocating literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds."

ALSC launched a new website that contains resources to help you plan your own Día celebration. Watch Pat Mora's introduction to the new site.

Visit Día's website for book recommendations, to download the Día Resource Guide, and to learn more about this special day.

Last year Shannon Miller, Alyson Beecher, and I celebrated
Día together. Our students took turns reading the Spanish and English parts of Pat Mora's Book Fiesta!

Spread the word about Día by sending an e-card.

Borrow Book Fiesta! from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
