This Day in History - April 8

April 8, 1974: Aaron sets new home run record

Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's home run record back in 1974 (although it's been surpassed, of course).

What records have you broken? Encouraging children (of all ages) to reach for the stars, these are the Kane/Miller books that should inspire the artist, athlete and dreamer in all of us!
