Hispanic Heritage Council of Western New York

Celebrate "Day of the Child"
Celebramos "El Día del Niño"
April 30th in Honor of Our Children.

This year will be a little different, in response to the COVID-19 stay at home restrictions. We invite you to select a story of your choice and share with children during their stay at home school education. All stories will be available through the school year and beyond for family pleasure.

We like to thank all our readers, partners, and community for making this a special day possible!

Find Your Favorite Story from our YouTube playlist HERE. We also have several proclamations in recognition of this event HERE.
