“El Día del Niño” which originated in Mexico in 1925 is celebrated each year on April 30th by many Latin
American countries and in many cities across the Americas. For the past thirteen years HHC has institutionalized
this day here in Western New York, in honor of the children and to promote family values.
El Día del Niño is a day that has been set aside to recognize the importance of children in society and support
their health, safety, and education. Beginning in 1996, several grassroot organizations, libraries, and universities
worked together to link El Día del Niño with language and literacy as a way of supporting the wellbeing of children.
On April 30, 1997, this idea culminated in the first “Día del Niño / Día de los Libros” being observed.



The goals and founding principles of this observance extend throughout the year and call for a daily commitment to:

• Recognize and honor the importance of children and childhood;
• Promote literacy and the importance of reading by linking children to books, languages, and culture in
the home and at school;
• Honor home languages and cultures by promoting bilingual and multilingual literacy in this
multicultural nation, and global understanding thru reading and art;
• Influence parents to become involved in the education of their children;
• Encourage healthy eating habits for nourished bodies and healthy minds; and,
• Show our children the value of character, community, and good citizenship
