Hispanic Heritage Month Trading Cards, http://www.nickjr.com/printables/hispanic-heritage-heroes.jhtml, accessed September 15, 2011.

September 15-October 15, 2011 is recognized as Hispanic Heritage Month.  Nick Jr. is offering printable trading cards featuring Hispanic Heroes from a variety of fields: science, education, politics, arts, and sports.  The cards are brightly colored; feature the name, field and background of each hero; and have a picture printed on each.  Such features make the cards attractive to kids, much like baseball cards.  Below the image of the cards (where you can choose to print them) is a tab called “More Hispanic Heritage” with more printables (predominantly coloring pages).

I think these trading cards are a terrific resource for librarians.  Story times for this month should feature Hispanic authors or themes and a pack of trading cards could be passed out to participants.  If you’re looking for “repeat customers,” I recommend packaging the cards like baseball cards, only including four cards per week to encourage families to return for more books, crafts and activities.  Additionally, I would enlarge each card and post them around a display honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, along with appropriate books, movies and music.

Never too soon to ask, “What do you want to be?” Suddenly silent?
