¡Gracias, gracias, gracias! What a Díapalooza we’ve had this month!
Thanks to each of you who sent us posts and to all who visited our bookjoy blog. Yea to the librarians, teachers, parents, community organizations and sponsors who planned meaningful Día events that celebrated children and demonstrated that family literacy is FUN. Thanks also to ALSC and REFORMA, my Día partners.
A special thanks to Laurina Cashin who gathers material and helps design the blog. Since Laurina and Bobbie Combs, the team who manage my web site and newsletter, suggested the great Díapalooza idea and creatively help me grow Día, they are the new Día Dynamos. Thanks for your steady help, mis amigas.
Have ideas for our next Díapalooza? Please send your suggestions to webcontact, etc. Hint about Díapalooza April 2011? The number 15!
Those of us committed to sharing bookjoy promote 365 READ, reading as a daily pleasure. Since many Día celebrations are now a kick-off to Summer Reading Clubs, May is a good month to stress pleasure reading and to remind children and families to sign-up for Summer Reading Clubs.
The members of Día’s National Community are a bit weary after a month of hard work, united in our commitment to link all children to books, languages and cultures, important work. Though apart geographically, we’re smiling together.
