Beverly Cleary, author of the Ramona series among other favorites, was born on April 12. In conjunction with School Library Month, www.dropeverythingandread.com is promoting a day to "just read". Since April 12th fell during our spring break, some elementary schools chose to celebrate another day.
Students at Tyro Elementary celebrated DEAR day on Monday, April 17th. The theme was "For Peeps Sake, Drop Everything And Read!" Each student received a Peep bookmark and enjoyed Peep marshmallow treats. See below for a pdf of the bookmarks.
Dianne Wright is highlighting Beverly Cleary on the morning news programs at Friendship and has invited guests to come and read excerpts from their favorite Cleary titles. I got to share my favorite, Henry Huggins, today with kindergarten!
You can celebrate D.E.A.R. day anytime and adopt any theme. If you have celebrated DEAR day or School Library Month, comment below. We would love to feature your school library in the next blog.
