"Drop Everything and Read" Day

In honour of Beverly Cleary's 90th birthday, 12 April is Drop Everything and Read Day (D.E.A.R.). As the website says, this "is a special reading celebration to remind and encourage families to make reading together on a daily basis a family priority." To make things easier for parents who are trying to decide what books to read with their children, the partners of the program have come up with a helpful suggested reading list broken down by age levels. Cleary's popular character Ramona Quimby is the spokesperson for D.E.A.R. Via Rebecca's Pocket.
