Feliz Día de los libros/Día de los niños

Children's Book Day is celebrated in libraries on April 30 each year to celebrate multi-cultural children's literature. Started by award-winning author Pat Mora in 1996 "Día" celebrates the joy of reading. This year in honor of Children's Book Day students in my Spanish 101 class helped to create a Library Guide that showcases some of the bilingual Children's Books in the Maxwell Library. The Guide can be found here

In Pat Mora's honor this year on "Día" I read her book Gracias/Thanks. This bilingual book is the story of a boy who tells readers all he is thankful for, including his friend Billy who showed him
the book about a boy giant who puts his little parents on top of a tall tree when they misbehave/
el libro sobre el niño gigante que pone a sus padres pequeñitos en la cima de un gran ábol cuando ellos se portan mal
Wonderfully illustrated by John Parra this book is a 2010 Pura Belpre Honor Book
