Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Drop Everything and Read Day.

D.E.A.R. stands for Drop Everything And Read. National DEAR Day is a special reading celebration to remind and encourage families to make reading together on a daily basis a family priority.

This holiday is celebrated on Beverly Cleary’s birthday, author of Ramona Quimby, Age 8. In honor of the author and the joys of reading, celebrate this holiday by reading Ramona Quimby, Age 8 on D.E.A.R. Day.

When Beverly Cleary’s own children were young, they participated in DEAR at school. Their interest and enthusiasm for this special reading activity inspired Mrs Cleary to give the same experience to Ramona Quimby, who gets to enjoy DEAR time with the rest of her class in Ramona Quimby, Age 8.
