The Reading Promise

When Alice Ozma was in 4th grade, she and her father decided to see if he could read aloud to her for 100 consecutive nights. On the hundredth night, they shared pancakes to celebrate, but it soon became evident that neither wanted to let go of their storytelling ritual. So they decided to continue what they called "The Streak." Alice's father read aloud to her every night without fail until the day she left for college.
Here are some of the books included in "The Streak". I added the actual book 'The Reading Promise' to the List as a point of reference for those that want to add this to their "To Do" List if you haven't read it.
