On April 30 each year we celebrate El día de los niños/El día de los libros, an literacy initiative conceived by author Pat Mora nineteen years ago. Libraries and schools across the country are engaged in all kinds of creative programs to promote family literacy and diversity.
Want to join the celebration? Sing to a baby. Read to a child. Buy a book for your family, or the family next door. Take your kids to the library. And keep the celebration going year-round!
