-- Learn how Curie worked alongside her husband and scientific partner, Pierre, while also teaching and raising two daughters; how this intense scientist sometimes became so involved with her research she forgot to eat or sleep; and how she struggled with health issues, refused to patent her discoveries (which would have made her very wealthy), and made valuable contributions during World War I. Packed with historic photos, informative sidebars, a resource section, and 21 hands-on activities and experiments which illuminate Curie's life and work, Marie Curie for Kids is an indispensable resource for budding scientific explorers. Kids can: examine real World War I X-rays; make a model of the element carbon; make traditional Polish pierogies; and much more.

Adolf Hitler's Birthday (1889)
- Adolf Hitler's 50th birthday was celebrated as a national holiday in Nazi Germany on April 20, 1939. On that day, the largest military parade in the history of the Third Reich was held in Berlin.

Hot Springs National Park Established (1932)
- Established from Hot Springs Reservation, Hot Springs National Park is a United States National Park in central Arkansas adjacent to the city of Hot Springs. Hot Springs Reservation was initially created by an act of the United States Congress on April 20, 1832, and the area was made a national park on March 4, 1921. It is the smallest national park by area in the United States.

National Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Day (1924)
- The first Pineapple Upside-down cake recipe was likely one found in a 1924 fund-raising cookbook published in Seattle. However, the Dole company is credited for popularizing the cake during the 1940s.

National Weed Day
- April 20th has evolved into a counterculture holiday, where people gather to celebrate and consume cannabis. Some events have a political nature to them, advocating for the decriminalization of non-medical cannabis in the United States. Over the years, theories about the meaning of 420 have pointed to California's penal code section for marijuana use, the police radio code for smoking pot, and the best day to plant cannabis, according to Snopes.
