El día de los niños/El día de los libros: Building a Culture of Literacy in Your Community through Día by Jeanette Larson

A celebration of children, families, and reading held annually since 1996, Children’s Day/Book Day, known as Día, emphasizes the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. In anticipation of Día’s fifteenth anniversary, the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) presents a collection of the best of its Día programming ideas, offering 

  • A wealth of ready-to-use programs, easily adaptable for a variety of cultures
  • Cultural competency training tips to encourage outreach to minority populations
  • Interviews with library directors about the best ways to heighten awareness of cultural and literacy issues

Complemented by numerous bilingual book suggestions, this resource is perfect for collection development, early literacy storytimes, and year-round program planning.
