It would seem that there is a day to celebrate every thing under the sun -- so why not spend a day honoring pickles? Sweet or dill, chopped or whole, spears or slices -- there are just so many ways to enjoy pickles.
For your Pickle Day reading enjoyment, try Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie by Julie Sternberg. Eight year-old Eleanor doesn't actually recommend putting pickle juice on your cookies. But she does find it an apt description of just how terrible life is when her long-time friend and babysitter Bibi announces her retirement.
Feel free to munch on a pickle as you read about Eleanor's woes -- but leave the cookies in the cookie jar!
