Alice and her father, a beloved elementary school librarian, have shared a love of reading together since before she can remember. One night, during Alice’s fourth grade year, she and her dad make a pact to read together every night for 100 consecutive nights. While celebrating over pancakes upon reaching their goal, they decide to keep ”the Streak” going for as many nights as they possibly can. Thus begins an evening ritual that last until Alice enters college– 3,218 nights!
Alice tells of her relationship with her somewhat eccentric father through the tales of shared books. From learning to ride a bike to their shared love of spiders and thunderstorms, this lighthearted, loving memoir of a girl and her father promises a great read!
