It's Child's Play Day

Children, with their unfettered egos, often confound adults. It's an odd notion, since we all used to be kids -- no matter how long ago. Philosopher and father of four Ralph Waldo Emerson once noted, "A child is a curly dimpled lunatic." Considering he stuck two of his sons with the unfortunate name Waldo, pint-sized loonies shouldn't have come as a surprise. But moms and dads and grandparents have days to be honored; why not kids? The Latino Cultural Center, invoking a tradition observed in several Spanish-speaking countries, is inviting children and their families to Dia del Nino (Children's Day), a day of storytelling, theater performances and arts and crafts. Dia del Nino is from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the Latino Cultural Center, 2600 Live Oak St. For more information call 214-671-0045 or visit
Sat., April 23, 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m., 2011
