Hello Kinder Friends,
Well our Book Fiesta and celebration on Friday was a huge hit. The sun was shining and we all had fun. Anybody can host a Book Fiesta. And this is a super way to celebrate during The Week of the Young Child. In Mexico, they celebrate The Day of the Child on April 30th. In different places all over the world The Day of the Child is celebrated. Adding a Book Fiesta to your celebration is a great way to incorporate some literacy into all of the festivities. Incorporating food, music, games and crafts into your celebration can make this a memorable event with your Book Fiesta being at the heart of your celebration.
We had so much fun with our special day that it really made me want to get some new books to keep the celebration going.
I had to order this book because I have used L is for Lone star and I liked all of the information that the book provided when we were talking about Texas. I have never seen P is for Pinata but I think this will be a welcome addition to our bookshelves for information about the Mexican culture and traditions.
Mexico ABC is a book about the people and places of Mexico.
Frida is a book about the artist Frida Kahlo. I thought this book would be a good way to tie in some art inspiration after reading this book.
Abuelita is a book about when a grandmother comes to live with a family. I thought this would be a good book to read and a great tie in to Mother's Day and Grandparent's Day.
And last... I was pretty excited to find this gem of a book. As we finish our Book Fiesta celebrations we will be reading, Look at the Book by Loreen Leedy. I am hoping to rush home tomorrow and find this book on my doorsteps so I can get it to schoo,l read it and conclude our celebrations with some fabulous bookmaking.
