Summer Reading

Holiday Take-aways

As the wheels of the education system begin to slow down a little over the next couple of months, its time for many to take a breath and catch up on some summer relaxation. From sea to sea to sea, schools are closing their doors and thoughts of a little rest and relaxation are beginning to fill the minds of many. 

For me, the next several weeks are, among other things, a time to catch up on some of the personal and professional reading that I never quite got to during the school year.

So, my question to you: What are your summer reading recommendations? Is there a book related to your work in education that you hold in high regard? Is there a piece of fiction that has spoken to you over the past year—one that you think should be on everyone’s bookshelf? Is there an article, website or blog that has inspired you and that you feel might inspire others?

I’ll share a few of my recommendations with you in the days and weeks to come, but I first throw the question to you. As the summer begins to work its magic on the Canadian psyche, what holiday reading are you packing in your suitcase?
