Today is Drop Everything and Read Day! D.E.A.R. Day is all about spending time with a good book and inspiring others to do the same, even if it’s only for a few minutes.
D.E.A.R. Day was started by author Beverly Cleary after she wrote about it in one of her books. Now, it’s celebrated in the real world every year on April 12, which is her birthday!
