During these times of sheltering at home, patrons and staff alike are missing regular in-person library programming. Here at NPL in 2020, we also had to postpone special in-person library events for the year's Nashville Reads title, 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.
*Update 4/23/2020: If you are looking for more Yuyi Morales content, check out this video she shared to her social media channels! Yuyi made this video especially for kids who may be a little sad being cooped up at home. In Spanish with available English subtitles (be sure to click on the CC, or Closed Captioning, button) this is an absolute treat!
