Children's Bilingual and Cultural Books are representing at the 2014 San Antonio Book Festival

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

It's finally here! 

The 2nd Annual San Antonio Book Festival will be held Saturday, April 5th, from 10-5pm at the Downtown San Antonio Public Library. Last year, we went after the kids' basketball game and had a wonderful time and spent the rest of the day at the festival. There's crafts, book readings, book signings, music and food!

And at the forefront of the children's section are many wonderful Spanish and English bilingual and cultural books. It's a perfect setting for my dual language learners. 

All of the action for kids will happen under the Children's Reading Tent, outside in the Library Plaza

Here's a lineup of the great children's books you will see and hear:
