It's D.E.A.R. Day! That's right--Drop Everything And Read Day. Many thanks to author Beverly Cleary for inspiring this great holiday. She introduced the idea of D.E.A.R. in her book Ramona Quimby, Age 8. Cleary turns 95 today. Celebrate her birthday and D.E.A.R. Day by reading. I'll be reading spring themed books in story time today, but I also plan to read Henry Huggins this afternoon. My new goal is to read all of Beverly Cleary's books.
Don't forget to "Drop Everything And Read" today!
