I visited two El Paso schools on April 30th, Burnet Elementary and Kohlberg Elementary. Both principals were true literacy advocates. Special thanks to librarian Kara Johnson at Burnet and to the mothers of the dual language program at Kohlberg for their enthusiasm. My hope is that in my home city of El Paso and across this country, every school will embrace the concept that Día—celebrating all children and linking them to books, languages and cultures—is a daily commitment and that annual spring book fiestas are an important and satisfying tradition to foster.
