Although we have postponed Nashville Reads, you can still share Yuyi Morales' books, and activities inspired by her books, at home!
During these times of sheltering at home, patrons and staff alike are missing regular library programming. Here at NPL, we also had to postpone special library programs such as this year's Nashville Reads featuring Dreamers by Yuyi Morales. While that is sad, the good news is that you can still enjoy books and activities inspired by the marvelous Yuyi Morales's works while you're at home!
Via her Facebook page, Morales has shared an entire packet of activities based on Dreamers. Activities include instructions on how to make your own book, paper flowers from tissue paper, and a game of bilingual Lotería!
On her website she has shared activities based on some of her other books, including downloadable paper masks based on the luchadores from Niño Wrestles the World, and a paper doll of the protagonist of her book Little Night, complete with different outfits.
