Mary Lee Hahn encouraged us to step beyond children's literature and professional literature. She suggested we read some books for fun. Ironically, next week I am going to a reading institute and one of the requirements is to bring some adult fiction to read during reader's workshop. When I took my own kids to the library today to sign up for the summer reading program I looked at some books for myself. I chose The Secret Life of Bees to start with...so far it has me hooked. I might have to return to the library this weekend for another book to keep me going next week. I am devouring this one.
The balance now is spending some time with The Secret Life of Bees while continuing to read and process Teaching with Intention. I will keep you posted on both!
