It's D.E.A.R. Day!

April 12th is a heartwarming day for many librarians, teachers, and readers. It is Beverly Cleary's birthday! In honor of her, people everywhere are celebrating D.E.A.R. Day - a day to Drop Everything And Read! I plan to do a bit of reading myself today and hope you do, too.

If you are unfamiliar with Cleary's works, her characters include Ramona Quimby, Henry Higgins, and Ralph S. Mouse. I would highly recommend reading (or re-reading) her books. My favorites include Muggie Maggie and The Luckiest Girl. If you like to tweet, share what you've been reading today with the hashtag #DEAR_Day. Happy reading, friends!
