Alice’s father, an elementary librarian, made a promise to read to her aloud for 100 consecutive nights, what they called “The Streak.” They reached their goal and beyond starting while Alice was in the fourth grade and ending when she went to college. During this time it was just more than reading books from L. Frank Baum to Shakespeare, the daughter and father strengthened their relationship and changed each other’s lives forever.

When I saw the book titled the Reading Promise at the library in non-fiction section, I had to check it out. I can relate to the author and her father, as I love reading books. It was joy reading about “The Streak” and the life of Alice and her family. I recommend the book to all book lovers, you will not be disappointed.
