Drop Everything and Read Day

Happy Drop Everything and Read Day and Happy Birthday, Beverly Cleary!

Beverly Cleary popularized the term “Drop Everything and Read”, or D.E.A.R, in her widely popular children’s book series about Ramona Quimby. Today is officially celebrated as D.E.A.R. Day in honor of the late Beverly Cleary’s birthday, however, April is celebrated “a national month-long celebration of reading designed to remind folks of all ages to make reading a priority activity in their lives.” Read more about Beverly Cleary, her books and characters, and D.E.A.R. here.

Celebrate reading with your colleagues, friends, and family by taking some time out to “drop everything and read” today, another day in April, or every day!
