April 2nd is International Children's Book Day - a day set aside to inspire a love of reading in children and to call attention to the wealth and types of children's literature available. Since Easter falls on the following Sunday, Pat couldn't help but combine the two celebrations into one tablescape.

Not exactly tablescaping stuff:
March is Middle Grade March 2021 for those who participate in the month long readathon on Booktube and Instagram to celebrate "the amazing category of books that many times we forget about as adults." It's so fun to be able to have an excuse to reread all of my favorite books as a child. Of course, I have no excuse to the dozens of other middle grade books that I just bought.......
Check out Krista at Books and Jams [@BooksAndJamso learn all about it even though the event is almost over.
