January: across our country, the Día Community reminds our partners that Día: Children’s Day, Book Day, in Spanish, El día de los niños, el día de los libros, is a daily commitment and that January is a good month to begin planning culminating April bookjoy celebrations. Day by day, día por día, we creatively excite children and families about books–all children, all cultures, all languages.
Last year was Día’s 20th Anniversary. Let’s build on that excitement! The Día section of my site includes a planning booklet. If you wish to register your April celebration, please complete this form. We are grateful to our partners at Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) for maintaining this registry, to First Book for coordinating the Mora Award, and to AFT and other partners for helping us promote this literacy initiative.
Join us in creating an annual Día tradition in your community, state and in our inclusive nation.
