Happy April, Kidsreaders!

This is a great month because, like December, it’s filled with holidays. You have April Fool's Day, Easter (my best friend lives in Boston and said they had to bury their eggs in the snow, this year!), Passover (which for me involved a 13-person Seder at my apartment --- an impressive feat for New York City) and, later in the month, Earth Day.

But since we’re a book website, we’re obviously particularly excited about two major literary holidays going on in April: National Library Week (April 12th-18th) and National Poetry Month (all 30 days!). We’ve brainstormed some ways to celebrate both (despite the fact that National Library Week is halfway done). If you try any of these ideas, let me know how they work by sending me an email at shara@bookreporter.com!

Happy April!

Your kids are probably loving this month because it's so holiday-heavy --- maybe they've tricked teachers on April Fool's Day, hunted for eggs on Easter, ate chocolate-covered matzah on Passover and are gearing up to plant some flowers on Earth Day.
