Summary
Alice Ozma tells the story of how she and her father, an elementary school librarian, set a goal when she was in fourth grade of reading together for one hundred consecutive nights and continued on until she went away to college, and discusses the bond that developed between her and her dad, and the life lessons she learned from their time together
Summary
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. Father and daughter embarked on a streak of reading-out-loud sessions every night before bed as Ozma was growing up--a "streak" that would continue for eight years straight
