To celebrate Día de los Libros, a nationally recognized initiative that emphasizes the importance of literacy for children from all backgrounds, California First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom will host an interactive, bilingual virtual storytime at 10 a.m. Friday, April 30, for hundreds of California families, kids and child care providers.

The First Partner will read “Marta! Big & Small,” which teaches little ones to identify opposites and animals and learn new words in English and Spanish through the adventures of a clever girl named Marta.

The event will be live-streamed on the First 5 Association of CA Facebook page.

The statewide Día celebration is hosted by First 5 Association of CA, First 5 CA, and the California State Library.

“Marta! Big & Small” is authored by Jen Arena and illustrated by Angela Dominguez.
