Today, April 23rd, is WORLD BOOK DAY: a symbolic date for world literature. On this date and in the same year of 1616, Cervantes, Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died. It is also the date of birth or death of other prominent authors such as Maurice Druon, K.Laxness, Vladimir Nabokov, Josep Pla and Manuel Mejía Vallejo. So the UNESCO wanted to pay a tribute to books and authors on this date, encouraging everyone, and in particular young people, to discover the pleasure of reading.
The idea for this celebration originated in Catalonia where on 23 April, Saint George's Day, a rose is traditionally given as a gift for each book sold. St. George is the patron saint of England. There is also a very beautiful legend about this character. Do you know it? Look and listen...

Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment. It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson on April 22, 1970 and it´s celebrated in more than 175 countries every year. Earth Day is celebrated in spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.
Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in greater peril than ever. While climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, it also presents the greatest opportunity to build a healthy, prosperous, clean and green planet now and for the future.
But what can we do, as individuals, to help the Planet? Watch this video of Polly Bear. She wants to tell you about Earth Day and what you can do to SAVE THE PLANET . You know... THINK GREEN! Happy Earth Day!

Wow! The play "Monster Madness" was fantastic! We had a great time because the two actors were very funny. Besides, some of the children from the audience could participate as actors too. Noemi Zubieta from 5ºB acted as Janet and she did it really well. And Sergio Blanco from 6ºB was a wonderful Igor, playing as a professional actor. Good for them!
Would you like to see some pictures of this event? Here you are...

Yes! Tomorrow is the great day! We are going to see a play in English: MONSTER MADNESS. This is the story of a newly married couple, Brad and Janet. Their car breaks down on a deserted road in the middle of a storm. There is a light in the distance. They hear voices and music. They decide to look for help at the sinister-looking castle on top of the hill. Dr Frankenstein is throwing a wild party to celebrate the birth of her latest creation, and she welcomes the young couple into her dark and mysterious abode. She will help them ... but at a price.
Wow! Scary... I can´t wait!

Since 1967, on Hans Christian Andersen's birthday, 2 April, International Children's Book Day (ICBD) is celebrated to inspire the love of reading among children and to call attention to children's books.
Each year a different National Section of IBBY has the opportunity to be the international sponsor of ICBD. It decides upon a theme and invites a prominent author from the host country to write a message to the children of the world and a well-known illustrator to design a poster. These materials are used in different ways to promote books and reading. Many IBBY Sections promote ICBD through the media and organize activities in schools and public libraries. Often ICBD is linked to celebrations around children's books and other special events that may include encounters with authors and illustrators, writing competitions or announcements of book awards.
The 2010 international sponsor of ICBD is Spain. The theme is "Un libro te espera, búscalo! A book is waiting for you, find it!" .
Celebrate ICBD with a trip to the library and buy a book you really like! A book can help you to learn about people from other countries, to appreciate and respect other cultures, and to get along with others. Í want you to read along this famous story: "The gingerbread man". Enjoy it!

April Fools Day Profile Graphics and Comments
graphics & comments April Fools Day Graphics

Today, April the 1st, is April Fools´ Day. April Fools´ Day is a time of fun, especially for kids. It´s a day when you can play tricks on your friends, relatives, neighbours, ... It´s celebrated in many countries, such as Portugal, France, Germany, UK, USA, Italy and Brazil. It is interesting to note that many countries celebrate this day of pranks, but pranks and jokes do vary from country to country. For example, if you are in Portugal, don’t be surprised if your best friend throws handfuls of flour at you. In India, April Fool's is celebrated as the arrival of spring at the Huli Festival. Children and adults alike smear brightly coloured powder all over the body to welcome the new season. Morning time is when the best pranks take place in England. If you fall victim to a prank there, you are called a "noodle", and if you forget to play your joke on someone in the morning, then you must remember not to do so after noontime, or bad luck will fall on you.

A similar tradition is celebrated in Spain and Latin America, but it takes place on December the 28th and it´s called Día de los Santos Inocentes.

By the way, did I mention that you must finish all the activities in your Activity Book during these holidays? Happy April Fools´ Day!
