Cleary: Ramona Forever

Beverly Cleary turns 90 today. To celebrate her birthday, kids across the [US] will Drop Everything And Read, just like Ramona does in "Ramona Quimby, Age 8." Cleary decided to include DEAR time in her books after some of her young readers suggested it. She loved the idea because she recalls being discouraged from reading when she was in school.
