Ozma shares vignettes about her relationship with her father and the life lessons learned from the books he read to her.
From the Publisher:
When Alice Ozma was in fourth grade, she and her single father - a beloved elementary school librarian - made a promise to read aloud together for 100 consecutive nights. Upon reaching their goal they celebrated over pancakes, but it was clear that neither wanted to stop. They decided to continue "The Streak" for as long as they could - until the day, a remarkable eight years later, Alice entered college.
Part memoir and part tribute to a father who shared his love of reading with his daughter by promising to read aloud to her (she was in the fourth grade at the time) at least ten minutes a night for 100 nights. It's a slight premise, but the adventure itself was anything but. In fact, it was so successful that both participants wanted it to go on; they continued "the streak" for 1,000 nights and more until the author left for college. Ozma fondly remembers characters, incidents, and life-lessons learned from the books she and her father discussed, but she recalls more than anything else the bonds they forged on this long and loving voyage, and the confidence she gained from her father's gift.
