Saturday April 12th is Drop Everything And Read (D.E.A.R.) day!!!!!!!!

The day was selected in honor of Beverly Cleary's birthday. Families, friends and communities are invitied to come together and read for at least 30 minutes on Saturday (and everyday!).

For more info about D.E.A.R. day, click here.

Also, April 30th is Children's Day/Book Day. It is a day to celebrate the joys and wonders of childhood and the importance of books in our lives.

"Reading to your child for at least 20 minutes a day can become a family tradition. Children will enjoy the experience and grow to love and appreciate books." For more info, click here.

I come from a long line of readers and am trying my best to pass that on to my kids. We visit our public library once a week for story time. The kids enjoy books, felt stories, songs and a craft. We load up on books and one video. All for FREE!! Click here for help finding your local library. Also, check with local book stores for story times. Barnes and Noble in my area holds them during the day and in the evening. Just resist the urge to buy books while you're there! Haha.

I'm so excited that summer is approaching. Our librbary has the coolest summer reading program. My kids (who are only 1 and 3) got so many fun "prizes" for reading last summer. The final prize was a new book. :) Be sure to check for programs in you area.
