What's Día?

El día de los niños, El día de los libros/Children's Day, Book Day April 30th & every day of the year

DiaDía means "day" in Spanish. In 1996, author Pat Mora learned about the Mexican tradition of celebrating April 30th as El día del niño, the day of the child. New Mexico author Pat Mora thought, "We have Mother's Day and Father's Day. Yes! We need kids' day too, but I want to connect all children with bookjoy, the pleasure of reading." Every year, across the country, libraries, schools, community organizations, etc. plan culminating book fiestas creating April Día celebrations that unite communities.
