Next month we’ll be celebrating Día’s 16th Anniversary. Friends ask me what it’s like to have a teenager again (I’m the mother of three grown children), and I laugh and say, “My teenager belongs to a huge national family of Día advocates. Like any teenager, she still needs her family to grow into her full potential.”
Today we’re saluting our first Día Author & Illustrator Ambassadors, talented and busy artists and literacy supporters who have generously agreed to promote Día, to promote linking all children to books, languages and cultures. I’m grateful to each of them for sharing bookjoy, and I encourage you to savor their books.
Our third Díapalooza, a Día Month on this blog, begins April 1. We hope you’ll visit us often during April and bring friends! Throughout the month we’ll feature:
News about Día events throughout the country by guest posters
Día Reflections by Pat
Videos made by some of our Día Author & Illustrator Ambassadors
A New Alphabet — Día Advocates A-Zing!
… and Surprises!
So stop by during Díapalooza–or simply subscribe to Bookjoy and receive new posts automatically. Celebremos!
