Thanks to my childhood as the son of a public librarian, I've always loved to read. Here are just a few of my latest suggestions for adding some new perspectives to your thinking. Of course, I read them through the filter of an educator, so don't let the titles throw you. I would enjoy engaging in a dialogue about any of the ideas.
