Forget the Jellybeans

In addition to being Easter, tomorrow is Drop Everything and Read Day. How about tucking a book into your child's Easter basket? Or hiding a coupon good for one super-special-just-you-and-Mom/Dad trip to your child's favorite bookstore in one of those plastic eggs?

Just something to think about.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a chocolate rabbit to devour.

Thank you for this! My daughter just put this link on her twitter account.
Have you read this essay on redroom.com? Apparently Beverly Cleary just joined as one of their authors:

Thanks for the heads up on "Drop Everything and Read Day"!

My bf and I were just talking about how much we used to read as kids, but don't get to quite as much as adults.

Now that I've gotten into Bro. 2.0, I've reawakening the reading beast within. Rawwwr!
