Bears Repeating

If you want to know if a book will be a good one to share with your students, here is the secret: READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT.


I am weary of folks who want others to read it and digest it for them. If you are not a baby bird, you do not need someone to feed you through regurgitation. You need to read it, consider it, digest it, and decide. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT.

It is fine to ask for book recommendations. But do not ask someone else to help you select a book. That is your job. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT.

One of my favorite books is EVERYBODY NEEDS A ROCK by Byrd Baylor. The 10 rules she provides for finding a rock are my own 10 rules for finding those foundational (rock-like books for students). One of the rules is, "Don't ask anybody to help you choose." READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT.

In conclusion, if you are looking for some new books to share with students, head to a bookstore, lurk in a library, seek out some kids. Ask for recommendations from your colleagues. Then...you guessed it: READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT. READ IT.
