El Día de Los Niños • El Día de Los libros (Children's Day • Book Day), commonly known as Día, is a celebration every day of children, families, and reading. The celebration emphasizes the importance of literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

According to their national website, Día is a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for all children from all backgrounds. It is a daily commitment to linking children and their families to diverse books, languages and cultures. The common goals of all Día programming are to:

  • Nurture cognitive and literacy development in ways that honor and embrace a child’s home language and culture.

  • Introduce families to community resources that provide opportunities for learning through multiple literacies.

  • Recognize and respect culture, heritage and language as powerful tools for strengthening families and communities.
