D.E.A.R. – Drop Everything and Read, April 12
By Tina Daniel, GFWC Education and Libraries Chairman
On Monday, April 12, celebrate the annual “Drop Everything and Read” day and beloved author Beverly Cleary’s birthday. Reading Rockets is a founder of the program and encourages families to read for thirty minutes together. The concept of “D.E.A.R.” is referenced in Cleary’s book Ramona Quimby, Age 8, which has become an inspiration for the campaign.
How can clubs participate?
