“El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day), commonly known as Día, is a celebration every day of children, families, and reading that culminates yearly on April 30. The celebration emphasizes the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds.” – American Library Association (ALA)

Dia_Hi_ColorThe Día initiative proposed by author Pat Mora and supported by the American Library Association is now in its 20th year! It is a commitment to linking children and their families to diverse books, languages and cultures.

In celebration of Día, I’m holding a #DiadelosLibros Giveaway with a set of Lil Libros books! These colorful bilingual books are perfect for early literacy fun and cultural awareness. You can read along and describe all the wonderful images to your lil’ one. They’re also sturdy enough to last through the roughest of play.
