Bright April

The calendar says it is suppose to be spring but the snowstorm over the weekend tells me otherwise.

One book that isn't on my bookshelf yet is Bright April by Marguerite De Angeli. I don't remember when I first read it but I do remember wanting to join the Girl Scouts afterwards. :)

I suppose we read the book out loud because my sister's name is April.

Anyway, it is a excellent read while waiting for spring. The story starts with the snow just melting and progresses through the seasons while we watch April grow and overcome the challenges of being African-American in the 1940's.
