In honor of Beverly Cleary’s birthday on April 12th, children in schools all over the nation will spend time this week stopping to read for 20 minutes each day. While every day is a great day to Drop Everything And Read, the goal of D.E.A.R. is to encourage reading as a regular part of our daily routines. So, spread the word and enjoy a reading celebration today, tomorrow, and every day!
The beloved Beezus and Ramona story will be coming out in movie theaters on July 23rd but we want to make sure you “Read It Before You See It”! For information about all of Beverly Cleary’s books, follow this link and for fun activities to do (including a trivia quiz about all the characters) go here.
The Beverly Cleary books at The Purple Cow Bookstore are all 15% off this week (April 13 – April 17).
