November 20th is World Children’s Day. Besides celebrating the little ones at home, this observance day aims to promote the well-being and rights of children around the world. A good way to start celebrating this day is to give something meaningful and educational to our children, helping them celebrate their heritage while supporting Latin-owned brands and making a good investment.
Many gifts can come to mind for this occasion, and here are three options from very special brands where you can find a variety of children’s products that promise to find a place in the hearts of your little ones.
Lil’ Libros is a company founded by mothers Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein, which was born from the desire to promote bilingualism among children and Latin American culture through reading. Lil’ Libros has a wide variety of products in addition to its books: board games, toys, dolls, illustrations, and pins in every age range. If you are looking to teach your child about their heritage and Latin culture, this is your ideal store. Their book collections, in addition to teaching about Latin artists, have special editions that talk about cities and traditions that are celebrated throughout the continent.

Celebrate World Children’s Day with some of these gifts and give your kids something they can enjoy alone or with their friends while getting an educational benefit. And remember that World Children’s Day is also about promoting the welfare of those who need it most and donations. So if you want to go a little further, you can look for local organizations and donate to those who need it most or give a second life to the toys your kids don’t use anymore. Let’s celebrate all kids around the world!
