Drop Everything And Read
Drop Everything And Read Family Reading Night is one of my favorite events of the whole school year. Nothing fancy. No refreshments, no video, no computers (not exactly true - more ereaders this year...). Just reading.
It is a wonderful experience. Readers, young and old, on the floor, curled up in corners, with parents, brothers and sisters... spread out all over the library - and there is silence.
I love the library a little loud, but there is something about all those readers, that just puts a lump in my throat.
