Children will have fun while trying out regional Latin dance steps and practicing Spanish words. A visit from Andrés is always exciting! If you can't make it to this program, there will be more opportunities to catch ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! at other DC Public Library locations throughout the summer.

On Monday, April 30 at 1:30 p.m., we will have bilingual story time for children ages infant to six. Sing your favorite songs, like The Itsy Bitsy Spider, with us in English and Spanish, enjoy bilingual picture books by author Susan Middleton Elya, and more!
