April 30 is Dia Children’s Day/Book Day

Dia Children’s Day/Book day, commonly know as Dia de los Ninos/Dia de los Libros is April 30!

From ALA:

Día is a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for all children from all backgrounds. It is a daily commitment to linking children and their families to diverse books, languages and cultures.

The common goals of all Día programming are to:

  • Celebrate children and connect them to the world of learning through books, stories and libraries.
  • Recognize and respect culture, heritage and language as powerful tools for strengthening families and communities.
  • Nurture cognitive and literacy development in ways that honor and embrace a child’s home language and culture.
  • Introduce families to community resources that provide opportunities for learning through multiple literacies.

Below are a couple of links to help you celebrate.
