The #L4LL Día Blog Hop Starts TODAY
Joy of joys! Today marks the first day of the (Latinas4LatinoLiterature) #L4LL Día Blog Hop! 20 amazing Latino children's authors and illustrators paired with 20 Latina bloggers (yes, MommyMaestra is on the schedule!) for 20 days of celebrating Latino children's literature and literacy. There are two posts up over on the #L4LL site, so head on over to read them.
I've neglected MommyMaestra a bit the last week, mainly because I was so busy trying to make sure all the articles were in and to their bloguera partners. Phew! It was well worth the effort because you will NOT want to miss a single one! The articles are moving, inspiring, and joyful. I can't tell you how many times I started crying while reading one. Okay, a bit much, but it is really just so FANTASTIC to see such collaboration among people and the sincere love that these authors have for our children. If I could bottle all that up and give it to every single Latino child in this country, not a single one of them would struggle with literacy. Not one.
And for all you parents and teachers, there is an extra bonus. In addition to the amazing articles, there's also a major giveaway that you don't want to miss.
Seriously, get over there and enter your school or local library.
