El Día de los Niños
El Día de los Niños-Celebrating Young Americans is a gift from the Latino community to all children. Many nations throughout the world, and especially within the Western hemisphere celebrate “Día de los Niños” on April 30th to honor and celebrate children—who represent the hopes and dreams of every community.
In the United States, a growing number of cities, schools, libraries, museums, churches and other community organizations are embracing this celebration by planning activities and events that:
- Are fun and exciting
- Center around children’s interests
- Develop skills
- Instill confidence
- Capture children’s dreams and hopes
- Involve families and community
- Reflect cultural diversity
- Inspire and empower new generations of achievers
- Create advocacy for children’s issues
- Engage civic leaders, media, sponsors and volunteers
The celebrations may be as small as a classroom teacher and her students enjoying an uplifting activity, or a citywide event where thousands of children gather to enjoy parades, book festivals, hands-on activities and entertainment offered at no cost to the children.
