Celebration of El Dia over but books and literacy continues

El día de los ninos/El día de los libros was over yesterday. But we will continue to promote books and literacy all year long. A few days ago, I was honored to help celebrate El Día at three Houston libraries and a pre-school center. After the readings, there were arts and crafts for the children, music by mariachis, and piñatas. It was a fun event! Here are a few pictures from the event.

 By the way, my two newest books, Let’s Salsa and Lupita’s First Dance, made it to the “Top 50 Latino Childrens Books,” list on the Mamiverse blog. 

If you already have a book out and would like tips on how to promote it, visit the Wild About Words blog where Cynthia Leitich Smith’s post offers outstanding tips on how to “promote your book like a pro.”
