RIO GRANDE VALLEY, TEXAS – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley will highlight Día de Los Niños on April 30 to honor and celebrate children – the future, hopes and dreams of every community.

This year, UTRGV is marking the annual event with “UTRGV Story Time,” a special online project that features university faculty and friends reading children’s books. Some stories will be read by the authors themselves or feature a musical accompaniment.

As children remain at home with their families during the COVID-19 pandemic, UTRGV hopes parents will share and enjoy these videos with their young ones.   The “UTRGV Story Time” playlist can be found at
