June 2012

Hi folks!

Are you ready for the summer? If you’re a parent, make sure to keep your kids reading. When researchers talk about “the summer slide,” they are not talking about playground equipment. Studies show that many students, especially boys and low-income students, experience reading regression during their summer vacations. So make a commitment to integrate reading into everything you do, and don’t forget that books on tape are a great way to pass the time on those long road trips.

Speaking of road trips, I have logged over 30,000 air miles this past month, and I think I will be exceeding that in June. I’ve been delighted to speak around the country and meet some amazing teachers, school and business leaders, authors and speakers. Best of all, I have managed to read a bunch of books on planes, including The Sins of the Father by Jeffrey Archer, Calico Joe by John Grisham and Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer.

Anyhow, enjoy this month’s book selections below. I hope you are all reading some wonderful books. Make sure to tell me all about them. If you're an author or a publisher and would like to send me review copies of your book(s), please send them to the address listed for authors and publishers.
