Children’s Day, Children’s Book Day
El día de los niños, El día de los libros
The Santa Fe Public Library will celebrate 25 years of Día and promote families reading together by distributing craft kits and bilingual books to Santa Fe children.
There will be 100 kits containing free books and crafts available starting Tuesday, April 27 and can be picked up during curbside pickup hours (noon-5:30 p.m.) on April 27, 28, 29, and May 1 (while supplies last).
For about the last fifteen years, I’ve had the good fortune to have Bobbie Combs as my Web Manager. Woo-hoo! Bobbie and her partner, Laurina Cashin, heard me speak at a conference. Luckily for me, they introduced themselves and gave me their card. Initially, I worked primarily with Laurina who still coaches us from above.
I couldn’t effectively promote my writing for all ages and Children’s Day, Book Day without Bobbie’s talents, patience and creative ideas. Gracias! Thanks, Bobbie! You are a gem and a CDBD champion.
Triple Treat: Read a Book, Make a Poster, Enjoy a Treat
This 3-part activity is easy to do at school or at home: have children read or listen to a book, create a poster about it to decorate their room or home, and enjoy a treat. Bonus: share your posters with your family, friends, teachers and librarians.
