12th April – Drop Everything And Read Day!

On this day…

12th April – Drop Everything And Read day!!DEAR

Beverly Cleary wrote about D.E.A.R. in Ramona Quimby, Age 8. Since then, “Drop Everything and Read” programs have been held nationwide on April 12th in honor of Mrs. Cleary’s birthday.

Reading, whether you’re on your own or cozied up on the couch with your kids, is so much more fun and rewarding than just about anything else (especially, chores!). So, folks of all ages “drop” whatever they’re doing and pick up a book, instead.
