Drop Everything and Read

Drop Everything and ReadJoin Ramona on April 12 and Drop Everything and Read!

National Drop Everything and Read Day is celebrated on Beverly Cleary’s birthday, author of the Ramona books and many others.

If you need reading suggestions, the D.E.A.R. website has a list compiled by Reach Out and Read, NEA, and Reading Rockets, which is conveniently organized by age group.

While all you really need to celebrate is a book, the D.E.A.R. website also provides a resource page, which features reproducible resources and ideas for activities, displays, and events.

Of course you don’t have to celebrate D.E.A.R. on April 12; after all, the goal of the celebration is to “remind and encourage families to make reading together on a daily basis a family priority.” Drop Everything and Read every day!

How are you celebrating in your library? Share your ideas in the comments!
