I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

Rita R, May 29, 2014

Now that Maya Angelou will never write another word, I turn back to this classic to be reminded, once again, of her beautiful --yet difficult -- voice, and the life she spun from some difficult and chaotic times. This should be required reading...

David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell
David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

Rita R, October 8, 2013

In classic Malcolm Gladwell style, David & Goliath helps you see beyond and behind the obvious. Not only does he tell stories about how the supposedly weak overcome the obviously strong, he turns 'conventional wisdom' on its head to show how California's "three strikes" law increases crime, how going to an Ivy League school can sometimes create failure, and how playing by the rules can look like breaking them. Wonderful book!

How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character by Paul Tough
How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character

Rita R, January 1, 2013

If you are a parent or involved in any aspect of our educational system, you need to read this book. Paul Tough reads all the boring research about how kids learn and how our education process helps and hinders that and puts it into readable, accessible language.

The Freedom Writers Diary by Erin Gruwell
The Freedom Writers Diary

Rita R, August 5, 2012

Erin Gruwell took Ghandi's challenge: she became the change she hoped to see in the world. And the 150+ students who would not have ever received an education were changed...the story of the Freedom Writers is inspiring and as important as ever....
