Summary

When Alice Ozma was in 4th grade, she and her father decided to see if he could read aloud to her for 100 consecutive nights. On the hundreth night, they shared pancakes to celebrate, but it soon became evident that neither wanted to let go of their storytelling ritual. So they decided to continue what they called "The Streak." Alice's father read aloud to her every night without fail until the day she left for college. Alice approaches her book as a series of vignettes about her relationship with her father and the life lessons learned from the books he read to her. Books included in the Streak were:Great Expectationsby Charles Dickens, the Oz books by L. Frank Baum,Harry Potterby J. K. Rowling,Alice's Adventures in Wonderlandby Lewis Carroll, and Shakespeare's plays.
