Bilingual Children's Book Event
We’ll have a special “Dia” (Dia de los Ninos/ Dia de los Libros, Children’s Day/Book Day) at the Takoma Park Maryland Library on Sunday, April 24 at 3:00 PM as local author/illustrator Lulu Delacre talks about her new Spanish/English book, Olinguito de la A a Z/Olinguito From A to Z. In the book, Delacre cleverly uses the alphabet to introduce young readers to the habitat of the olinguito, a recently discovered mammal that lives in the cloud forest of the Ecuadorean Andes. Kirkus called Delacre’s book, aimed at ages 4-8, “poetic and informative, a breath of fresh air in the too-often-contrived world of bilingual books.” Delacre’s presentation will end with a craft related to her book. Politics & Prose will be selling copies of Delacre’s book, but the event is free and no purchase is required to attend. Please join us for this fun way to enjoy a new bilingual book and participate in the national celebration of “Dia de los Ninos/Dia de los Libros”!
