On Monday, April 30, 2007, Sens. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Jack Reed (D-RI), joined by children from the Oyster Bilingual School, honored El día de los niños/El día de los libros at the U.S. Capitol.
After delivering opening remarks, Sens. Reed and Menendez discussed advocating for literacy for children of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Sen. Menendez then read to the enthusiastic group of children.
