What's Día? ¿Qué es Dia?

El día de los niños, El día de los libros/Children's Day, Book Day
April 30th & every day of the year

Día means "day" in Spanish. In 1996, Santa Fe author and Día founder, Pat Mora learned about the Mexican tradition of celebrating April 30th as El día del niño, the day of the child. New Mexico author Pat Mora thought, "We have Mother's Day and Father's Day. Yes! We need kids' day too, but I want to connect all children with bookjoy, the pleasure of reading."
