April Foolishness

April Foolishness by Teresa Bateman, illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott, 2004 is the first picture book I've read about April Fool's Day.

The grandkids go to visit their grandparents on April Fool's Day. The grandchildren kept trying to tell their Grandpa that the animals had gotten loose from their pen on the farm. Grandpa went right on cooking breakfast. Finally the children asked why he wasn't listening and he said he knew it was April Fool's Day, but Grandma said April Fool's Day is tomorrow! Grandpa leaped up and ran outside only to find that Grandma had played the ultimate trick on Grandpa!
