In our April issue...

"End Plastic Pollution" is the theme of Earth Day this year. How will you celebrate on April 22? Students write about Earth Day. The difference between vegetarians and vegans and why eating meat has an impact on the environment is explained. Students march to protest gun violence and remember those killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. Who was the school named after? In addition, activists placed 7,000 pairs of shoes in front of the U.S. Capitol on March 13 to represent students killed in mass shootings since Columbine High School in 1999. President Trump visited California to view prototypes of his proposed wall. The 50th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. will be observed on April 4. People at work features a hotel housekeeper. April is Poetry Month. Share a poem with your children to encourage family literacy. Home Sweet Home! The conversation activity is on "being home." Students are encouraged to write about their homes and the homeless. A book review and report of the author's talk explains how sports can bring a community together.

Our readers write! We are happy to feature a story from a tutor at the Sonoma County Library Literacy Program and her student on page 1. Other readers responded to a story in our last issue when an exhibit on Julia Child asked what is your "recipe" for happiness? Our readers write from Florida and several sites in California.

There are many instant activities in this issue, idioms, quotes and citizenship questions related to the content. All this and more in our April issue...
