April 1: April FOOLS!!

Lister and Lester are identical twins who do identical things. But their constant striving to outdo each other means their little brother, Liam, is always left out. When Lester’s Lemonade Universe and Lister’s Lemonade Multiverse open for business, there’s no role for Liam. He does odd jobs around the neighborhood while Lister and Lester’s competition spirals into overdrive and their lemonade stands get increasingly, outrageously out of hand.

April 2: Autism Awareness Day

Mattland is a beautiful story about loneliness and friendship.

Even though Matt is not explicitly described as being autistic, elements of the story might make it relatable to autistic children and their families.

The story uses an interesting first person visual perspective which literally puts the reader in Matt's eyes. You see his focus and determination. You see his solitude. You see kind faces trying to make friends, but Matt's apprehension at social interaction.

Slowly, as "Mattland" grows and develops, Matt also grows accustomed to "the outsiders".

April 6: On this date... The first Modern-era Olympics were held

It's the day before the big parade. Alta can only think about one thing: Wilma Rudolph, three-time Olympic gold medalist. She'll be riding on a float tomorrow. See, Alta is the quickest kid in Clarksville, Tennessee, just like Wilma once was. It doesn't matter that Alta's shoes have holes because Wilma came from hard times, too. But what happens when a new girl with shiny new shoes comes along and challenges Alta to a race? Will she still be the quickest kid?

April 10: National Siblings' Day!

In 1997, Chicago Tribune columnist, Mary Schmich wrote a hypothetical commencement speech which became the basis for Baz Luhrmann's 1999 spoken word song "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)".

In it they say: "Be nice to your siblings. They are your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future."

So on April 10th we celebrate our brothers and sisters and everyone in between. They are our first friends, and our first rivals. And whether related to us by blood or bond, the connection is undeniable!

April 12: National Library Workers' Day

Libraries are a VITAL part of our culture, and in 2022, April 12th (or the second Tuesday of April) is a day when we honor those hard workers who make libraries possible: the staff!

April 13: Thomas Jefferson's Birthday

Happy Birthday, Thomas Jefferson!

Born on April 13, 1743, he would be 279 years old today!

Jefferson was the main writer of the Declaration of Independence, and served as the 3rd President of the USA, from 1801 to 1809.

Though Jefferson was not present at the Constitutional Convention, the inspiration for "Unite or Die", his influence was nevertheless felt.

April 15: On this day... The sinking of the HMS Titanic

The sinking of the Titanic on April 15th, 1912, was a tragic event that will be remembered for a long time to come.

In "SOS! Titanic", two young adventurers travel back in time and board the Titanic. Though they cannot avert disaster, they may just save their new friend.

April 17: DC Emancipation Day

Emancipation Day in DC commemorates the day when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act in 1862.

By doing so, he freed over 3000 slaves in the District of Columbia. Nine months later, Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation that freed over three million slaves across a large number of states.

April 23: Happy Birthday, William Shakespeare!

Happy Birthday, William Shakespeare!

Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564. Today would be his 456th birthday!

He wrote many plays during his career. One of this Tumbler's favorites is "A Midsummer Night's Dream" - presented here, in a graphic novel format that can be enjoyed by kids from grades three and up!

Arpril 24: On this day....Library of Congress established

Why do libraries matter?

Well, for one thing, the Library of Congress was established in 1800!

They're a VITAL resource for literacy, record keeping, dissemination of knowledge, and as a center for community resources and events!
