For the next 30 days BECA is raising $1,500 to fund our 2017 Libros y Familia event! Every dollar you donate to BECA goes directly to supporting our Libros y Familia event this spring.
What is Libros y Familia?
Originally introduced by author Dr. Alma Flor Ada, the idea behind Libros y Familias is that successful home-school-community partnerships with culturally and linguistically diverse families are possible if we recognize the enormous "funds of knowledge" families bring, and promote a meaningful dialogue between home and school based on mutual respect and trust.
Basic Goals of the Program
To increase the amount of time parents spend reading & talking to their children at home.
To produce & publish books authored and illustrated by parents & children.
To promote cultural activities that foster cultural pride and self-esteem.
