PROGRAM: Luciérnagas

Presented by:
Mississippi Humanities
Subject: Latinos, Literacy Audience: Children and Families

Because the number of Spanish speakers in Mississippi has increased dramatically in recent decades, the Mississippi Humanities Council offers Luciérnagas, a bilingual family reading program. The program features animated storytelling and open-ended questions that encourage meaningful conversations, thus helping families move from basic, functional reading to thoughtful literacy. MHC has offered successful “Luci” programs at sites throughout the state and is looking for additional sites and partners for this important program.
