Today I’m delighted to share a very special Read.Discuss.Do! graphic created by children’s author Rebecca Gomez for the Spanish edition of LOVE IS KIND — EL AMOR ES BONDADOSO!
This is the same activity that she previously created in English:
A couple of week’s ago, it struck me that my Spanish language readers might enjoy this activity, so I asked Becky if she’d be up for creating a Spanish version. She said yes! It was a group effort, with special thanks to Rebecca’s husband and the Spanish team at Vida, but the final, lovely presentation is Rebecca’s. Thank you!
Although this is the first graphic Rebecca has created in Spanish, it is far from her first Read.Discuss.Do!
This campaign (hashtag #ReadDiscussDo), which celebrates reading beyond the book by creating sharable images that give simple ideas for book related discussions and activities, was created by Rebecca in 2017. That’s when she posted her very first #ReadDiscussDo in coordination with her picture book WHAT ABOUT MOOSE?
Since then, she has created over 50 Read. Discuss. Do! graphics including one for each of my books.
Many of the graphics, as well as dozens of posts that feature either #ReadDiscussDo activities or book lists can be found on her website. She’s also planning to launch a Read, Discuss, Do! website so be on the look out for that.
In the meantime, discovering the activities is easy. Simply search #ReadDiscussDo on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook!
Thank you, Rebecca, for creating a Spanish version for this special activity. Happy reading, discussing and doing, all!
