The goal of this workshop is to offer Children and Youth Services Librarians, and Educators a variety of library program ideas that will enhance bilingual programming. As the Hispanic population increases, there is a growing need for more quality bilingual programming for children in libraries, schools and other entities. The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the importance of quality bilingual children's programs that incorporated math, reading, science and writing skills using creative and fun manipulatives. This program will follow the theme for the RNC IV conference "Elevating Latino Services to a Higher Level: Juntos in the Mile High City!" by offering and demonstrating quality bilingual children's programs. The presentation will include a how-to hands-on programs geared for babies through elementary age children. A large portion of the presentation will cover the "Para los ninos" program http://www.cmhouston.org/losninos/ and will be dedicated as a tribute to Rose Trevino who was an advocate for the "Para los ninos" outreach program.
