On November 11, Word Up welcomes special story time guest Dania Santana, presenting her children’s picture book, La Familia Cool: El tesoro más valioso/The Most Valuable Treasure. La Familia Cool’s fictional world portrays the new Latino family through multiracial, multicultural, and bilingual characters. The book was a finalist for the 2016 International Book Awards, and received honorable mentions from the 2016 San Francisco Book Festival and the 2016 New York Festival.
And, every week, bring your kids to the community book shop to hear their favorite stories read out loud by experienced, trained readers. Just like their teachers in the classroom, but with new faces and new friends! Our regular story time reader is local writer and translator Mariel Escalante, with occasional special guests.
