The Smartest Kids in the World: And How They Got That Way by Amanda Ripley
The Smartest Kids in the World: And How They Got That Way

Lea Anna, February 3, 2014

A quick and interesting look at education and how students, parents, teachers and the education system all combine to teach children. Ripley focuses on three of the top scoring countries and examines how they work from the inside (following three American exchange students within the countries) out. Seeing the differences in teaching, learning and attitudes compared to America is something to think about. America definitely needs to rethink some things, but it turns out some of the simplest things to correct are parent driven, like reading to your child every night and asking them questions. She also gives a good "guide" to spotting a world-class school which will be helpful to any parent.

Can I Play Too? (Elephant & Piggie Books) by Mo Willems
Can I Play Too? (Elephant & Piggie Books)

Lea Anna, March 19, 2013

I love all of Mo Willem's Elephant and Piggy books! This one is about accepting someone for who they are and including them. These books are great easy readers with good lessons. I can't rave about them enough.

Walking Dead #02: The Road to Woodbury by Robert Kirkman
Walking Dead #02: The Road to Woodbury

Lea Anna, March 19, 2013

Another good installment on the twisted Governor character. This book explores how Woodbury came to be and how the Governor took it over. While The Walking Dead TV show may not portray the Governor as scary as the comics, these books bring you deeper into his dark psyche. I'm definitely looking forward to the final book of this series.

Heti has a unique voice and I had a hard time putting this book down. Her characters were interesting and raw. I enjoyed reading it.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
Where'd You Go, Bernadette

Lea Anna, March 19, 2013

I thought this book was hilarious. I love Bernadette's ranting on Seattle (even though my opinion of the city doesn't align with hers) and how unapologetic she is. I've always enjoyed epistolary novels with the different voices from all the characters. This is an extremely fun read.
