Every year, libraries and schools across the country celebrate El dia de los niños, or Children's Day. The event is also known as El dia de los libros, or Book Day. Officially it's celebrated on April 30, but celebrations span the end of April and much of May. It's a day to highlight the beauty and excitement of literacy for children and families of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
This year, we're celebrating Dia de los niños during our usual Toddler Story Time hour. On Tuesday, April 29, at 10:15 a.m. we will have a multicultural story time for one- and two-year-olds. The program is geared toward the little ones, but kids who are a little bit older (maybe 3 or 4) would enjoy it too and are welcome to come. We'll sing songs in multiple languages and we'll read stories from cultures all over the world!
Happy Children's Day! ¡Feliz dia de los niños!
