Drop Everything and Read Day

Today's my new favorite holiday and
I didn't even know it existed before
Leisa emailed me:

“Today is National Drop Everything and Read Day. Participate by spending 30 minutes reading -- to yourself, or to a child in your life.”

Leisa A. Hammett
Arts & Systemic Disability/Autism Advocate

So read King Bidgood's in the Bathtub/Wood
with your child or to yourself, or best of all, have your child read it to you!

Audrey Wood wrote this gem of
phrase repetition and problem solving.
Don Wood provided glowing pictures
that exactly illustrate the words and
yet have surprises galore.

Other delights by this pair include
The Napping House and Quick as a Cricket.

I do not usually drop everything and read.
I read and drop everything (plates, toothbrush, the laundry . . .)
