National DEAR Day

D.E.A.R. Day, or Drop Everything and Read Day, is an annual celebration observed on April 12. True to its name, this holiday encourages everyone to set aside a substantial portion of the day for reading. The chosen date coincides with the birthday of Beverly Cleary, a highly esteemed American author who originated the concept of D.E.A.R. This celebration persists in the United States and remains a beloved tradition, particularly among school students.
