The Reading Promise: 3,218 Nights of Reading with My Father
When Alice was nine years old, she and her father - a beloved school librarian - made a promise to read aloud together for 100 consecutive nights. Upon reaching their goal, they celebrated over pancakes, but it was clear that neither wanted to let go of what had become their reading ritual. They decided to continue what became known as The Streak for as long as they possibly could. From L. Frank Baum to Dickens to J.K. Rowling to Shakespeare, Alice's father read to her every night without fail until the day she entered college, a remarkable eight years later.
"Alice Ozma has given us the gift of a remarkable love story. In her love of books, and of her father, we see the most meaningful promises we might make to our own parents, our own children, and to ourselves."
"'Tender, funny, and deeply readable, The Reading Promise tells the story of how a simple ritual became a treasured father-daughter tradition. Promise yourself to revisit what matters... promise you'll pick up this tribute to the ways in which books change lives."
