For April we adopted a water cycle and rain theme (April Showers!…get it?), along with gardening.
We read for Marguerite Henry’s birthday and National Help a Horse Day (seems like those should have been on the same day!). There was also World Penguin Day, Earth Day, National Arbor Day and Shakespeare’s birthday – yes, we even managed to work The Bard into our 365 read-aloud project! April was National Poetry Month, which led to some entertaining selections, and National Library Week happened this month as well. In a sense, we could have relabeled this year “A Local Library Year”. We have always been fans of the public library – but never more so after leaning on them so much all year to help us keep our book list going!
