El día de los niños/ El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day), is a special day to celebrate all our children and the love of books, the absolute best combination! Award-winning author and literacy advocate, Pat Mora along with REFORMA, spearheaded this holiday to connect children from all different backgrounds to the joy of reading and cultural diversity. A great bilingual book to share with children this month is Mora’s Book Fiesta!: Celebrate Children’s Day.
