July Bookjoy Día Question
Did you enjoy attending Summer Reading at your local library?
Mom, who was a great reader, would drive my sister Cissy and me to Summer Reading events at the El Paso Public Library. I don’t remember that there was a club nor were there the kind of learning events that I read about in ALSC’s journal, CHILDREN & LIBRARIES. I do remember a table of books such as biographies that I grew to love.
I also remember that we received certificates at the end probably for completing a certain number of books. I tell children that today they can receive PRIZES and enjoy an exciting time at Summer Reading. A challenge is connecting families unfamiliar with this wonderful tradition. Let’s annually connect April Día celebrations to Summer Reading.
