April officially begins next Monday with April Fools Day. While we don’t know the exact history of the April Fools Day, we do know some of the most notorious pranks. On April 1, 1996, Taco Bell pranked the public by announcing it had purchased the Liberty Bell. Two years later, Burger King advertised a left-handed Whopper.

No matter how you kick off the month known for showers that bring flowers, we have thirty ideas of fun things to celebrate. Just a reminder: April is DEAR—Drop Everything and Read— Month. It’s a great time to re-read all four Night Buddies Adventures!
