Happy Día!

Happy Día de los Niños / Día de los Libros!

We had a great celebration yesterday with the families in our community, and the kids got to take home two books each.

Our party was carnival themed with craft and game stations, each inspired by a different bilingual or multicultural book.  Kudos to the organizer for coming up with such great ideas!  Here are some examples:

Luchador masks = a hit with the kids.

My mask.  I'm still trying to come up with a luchadora name.

Creating intricate designs with stencils.

Homemade kaleidoscopes.

Have a wonderful Día, and I hope you discover some great books today!
