Did you know September 15 through October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month? This celebration has been around since 1968 in honor of the great influence and contributions Hispanic Americans have made in the United States.
To celebrate, you can come to DBRL’s Spanish Story Time/Hora de cuentos en familia! Learn new words while listening to stories and songs in Spanish. This program is for native and non-native speakers alike and is for ages 2-5 with an adult. Registration is not required.
Our libraries also have books in Spanish that include board books, picture books and chapter books. A few of my favorites include “Fantasmas” by Raina Telgemeier, “Con cariño, Amalia” by Alma Flor Ada and “La granja de los siete establos” by Roberto Aliaga. You can check out the rest of our Spanish collection here.
These titles are great if you and your child would like to learn more about Hispanic culture and famous Hispanic Americans:
- “The Hispanic American Experience“
- “Portraits of Hispanic American Heroes“
- “Bravo! Poems About Amazing Hispanics“
Listening to music is also a great way to learn about and celebrate various cultures. Here are a few albums you are sure to enjoy!
Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! ¡Feliz mes de la Herencia Hispana!
