I love books about books, so I imagine I'm inclined to rate them a bit high. However, this effort by Alice Ozma relating "The Streak" or how her father read to Ozma nightly for over eight years is a charmer. So I think the rating is not a stretch.
Ozma shares the close relationship she developed over the years with her librarian father and how they started their reading streak. She also comments in almost sterile observations about her mother, her mom's detachment as she withdraws from the family, and the matter-of-fact way that she leaves the home.
The books Ozma's father reads to her over the years become more mature as she ages, but Ozma and her father never hesitate to revisit old favorites from the past. From Pinnochio to L. Frank Baum's OZ books to the Harry Potter series, there are plenty of choices provided to suggest a reading list for your own children or grandchildren, with plenty of encouragement to do just that.

I liked the IDEA of this book more than the book itself. The last pages of the book are a list of some of books that the father-daughter pair read during their reading streak.

This is a good book--but not the one I was expecting. Alice Ozma and her librarian father started a tradition of him reading to her every night. At first they agreed to do it for one hundred nights--but then decided to keep going and made it past one thousand into a streak that lasted until she went to college.

What I was expecting was a book about books--and a discussion of what books he read. What the book turned out to be was a sweet memoir about being raised by a single Dad who happens to be an extraordinary librarian and an interesting character. The book is about how the act of reading brought them closer.… (mais)

Un padre e una figlia, si ripromettono di leggere, tutte le sere prima di mezzanotte, qualche pagine di un libro..I libri faranno da collante tra questi due affetti, un modo per stare insieme, per conoscersi meglio, un attimo, che resterà per sempre nella loro vita...
Leggere non è mai una perdita di tempo, condividerli con gli altri...è il massimo..!!
Leggete con i vostri figli....
