I am sure most of us had summer reading lists when we were growing up. I was a big reader and used to go through book after book in the summer, staying up late insisting that I was just going to read “one more page” and then I would turn the lights out.
As an adult, I have tried to make reading a priority, especially during the summer. I feel there is nothing like getting lost in a page turner during plane travel, and still insist that I will only read “one more page” and then turn the lights out.
While I do make sure that I have some recreational books, I always make a reading list for myself during the summer. Summer is a time to recharge and reconnect for so many, including myself. Through this idea, I make sure that I read a couple of books that will launch me into the fall and teach me something new that I can pass along to students and families.
I am a re-reader, so this summer I am rereading Mindset by Carol Dweck. I am also reading Teach Your Children Well by Dr. Madeline Levine. Both titles have a brief synopsis on my Bookshelf page. I look forward to putting both titles to work as we launch into school searches in the fall.
Enjoy the rest of the summer of relaxing and recharging!
