What is D.E.A.R. Day?

It stands for Drop Everything And Read, and is a day popularized by Beverly Cleary in her Ramona novels. Author Beverly Cleary believed strongly in children seeing themselves represented in books so they could learn to love reading. She became an author to give kids book characters they could actually relate to, unlike the books she grew up reading. D.E.A.R. Day became nationally recognized as April 12 to honor her birthday and all of the joy she brought children. Schools, libraries, and individuals take this day to drop everything and bask in the joy of a good book and we have Beverly Cleary to thank.
