Longtime readers know that Scholastic Reading Club is a big fan of El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day), lovingly known as Día. Since it was founded in 1996 by author Pat Mora, Día has expanded to mean diversity in action as it celebrates all languages, children’s literature, and cultures across the globe. At the heart of Día is the goal of building meaningful connections between families, communities, and literacy.
Colección Megafamilia (Mega Family Collection) is in Club Leo’s March 2015 flyer, and it includes stories for the whole family to read, share, and enjoy together. The assortment of books includes humorous characters, nonfiction selections about life cycles and social skills, and charming tales that praise parents in honor of Mother’s and Father’s Day. It’s the perfect library builder.
Arrow’s April 2015 flyer also has a beautiful feature celebrating Día for older readers with two beloved books by renowned authors Dav Pilkey and Pam Muñoz Ryan.
Las aventuras del Capitán Calzoncillos (The Adventures of Captain Underpants) is a Spanish translation of the first book in the hugely popular series. Jorge and Berto begin their epic adventures when they hypnotize their school principal and turn him into a calzoncillos-wearing superhero!
Esperanza renace (Esperanza Rising) is a Spanish translation of the award-winning Esperanza Rising, a tale of a once-wealthy Mexican chica who is sent to a migrant-worker camp where she overcomes poverty by fighting for her rights. Set in post-revolutionary Mexico and Depression-era America, this powerful novel is based on a true story. It is the winner of the 2002 Pura Belpré Author Award.
We hope that you’ll find a way to celebrate Día with readers of all ages in your life!
