Did you know that each year the United States Congress names April 30th as El Día de los Niños? It’s a great effort meant to support the intellectual and emotional development of young people. More than 100 cities across the nation will celebrate this day with parades, book festivals, hands-on activities, and more! To see a list of El Dia de los Niños events around the country, visit http://www.nlci.org/programs/DLN/Main/Map.html.
Peep and the Big Wide World has been appointed as the featured guest at this year’s El Dia de los Niños celebrations. A science and math series for preschool age kids, it’s a sweet cartoon that my daughters love. Available in Spanish on V-me, Peep has expanded its bilingual episodes and activities, and will even be launching a new website soon.
