Краткое описание

The Reading Promise: My Father and the Books We Shared.

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 100th night, they shared pancakes to celebrate, but it soon became evident that neither wanted to let go of their storytelling ritual. Over the next 8 years—until Alice went to college—her school librarian father read to her every night, through Great Expectations, the Oz books and the Harry Potter series, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and Shakespeare's plays. Her delightful memoir and reading list is a series of vignettes about her relationship with her father and the life lessons learned from the books he read aloud."Named for two literary characters ('Alice' from Lewis Carroll and 'Ozma' from L. Frank Baum), the author is the daughter of a Philadelphia-area elementary school librarian.... Reading with her father offered a comforting continuity in the midst of her mother's disquieting move away from the family, her older sister's absence as a foreign exchange student, and the parsimoniousness of her single father. Ozma's account percolates chronologically through her adolescence, as father and daughter persevered in their streak of nightly reading despite occasional inconveniences such as coming home late, sleepovers (they read over the phone), and a rare case of the father's laryngitis. Ozma's work is humorous, generous, and warmly felt, and with a terrific reading list included, there is no better argument for the benefits of reading to a child than this rich, imaginative work."—Publishers Weekly
