El dia de los ninos /El dia de los libros- Children's Day/Book Day

Saturday, we had a nice surprise. We went to the library to check out books. When we got there, we discovered they were having El dia de los ninos - Children's Day. It is a celebration of children, families, and reading held annually on April 30. The celebration emphasizes the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

The kids made passports and received a stamp for each country they visited.

They made oriental fans from Asia.
