Beverly Cleary’s birthday is D.E.A.R. Day?

Thanks for Amazon and Pixel of Ink’s letting me know that Beverly Cleary’s birthday, April 12th, is celebrated across the country on D.E.A.R. Day, with activities related to the Drop Everything and Read Program. One of the most popular and honored authors of all time, Beverly Cleary has won the Newbery Medal for Dear Mr. Henshaw, and both Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books.
