It's About Color's


'One Drop: My Father's Hidden Life' by Bliss Broyard. I read this book in three sittings - Plus, two middle of the night wake up's where I read for hours more. ONE DROP is not only a compassionate family memoir but it also opens the discussion of race in the U.S. What does it mean to be black in this country? What does it mean to be white? Does your race define the person you are? Broyard, also the author of the collection of stories MY FATHER, DANCING, deftly blends personal memoir with a thoughtful reflection of racial identity in America.
'Going Gray' by Anne Kreamer. Every woman over 40 could learn from "Going Gray." Just because hair is gray doesn't mean old and frumpy. Think Meryl Streep in "Devil Wears Prada." Those ladies of a "certain age" that continue to dye into their 70's and 80's are fooling no one. What a relief not to worry about roots. This is Definitely a Must Read! There is a Coupon Code at the end of this Blog Piece, so that you can receive a Discount on either of these eBook Titles

One Drop: My Father's Hidden Life--A Story of Race and Family Secrets eBook edition by Broyard, Bliss
Two months before he died of cancer, renowned literary critic Anatole Broyard called his grown son and daughter to his side, intending to reveal a secret he had kept all their lives and most of his own: he was black.

Going Gray: What I Learned about Beauty, Sex, Work, Motherhood, Authenticity, and Everything Else That Really Matters eBook edition by Kreamer, Anne
Anne Kreamer considered herself a youthful 49 until a photo of herself with her teenage daughter stopped her in her tracks. In one moment she saw herself for what she really was -- a middle-aged woman with her hair dyed much too harshly. Kreamer realized that she was not fooling anyone about her age and decided it was time to get real.

Boarding School and Fashion


'Little Black Book Of Sytle' by Nina Garcia. The advice she gives is practical, easy to follow, and mainly she helps with this book to build your own fashion style. We turn to fashion magazines and books for tips on finding an individualistic style that maximizes our options based on a few well-chosen key pieces. Fun, funny, easy reading, the Little Black Book is a treasure to keep by your nightstand.
'Spud' by John van de Ruit. Even though it is set in South Africa, and I'm guessing that most of its readers will not have attended boarding school, teens everywhere will be able to relate to the trials and tribulations of main character John "Spud" Milton. It is boarding school at its craziest and best. The book is written in as Spud's diary entries, and all wicked South African fun, "Spud" is highly recommended to both adult and teenage readers. Check below for the Coupon Code to receive a discount on these two eBook titles.

Spud eBook edition by van de Ruit, John
It's 1990. Apartheid is crumbling. Nelson Mandela has just been released from prison. And Spud Milton--thirteen-year-old, prepubescent choirboy extraordinaire--is about to start his first year at an elite boys-only boarding school in South Africa. Cursed with embarrassingly dysfunctional parents, a senile granny named Wombat, and a wild obsession for Julia Roberts, Spud has his hands full trying to adapt to his new home. Armed with only his wits and his diary, Spud takes readers of all ages on a rowdy boarding school romp full of illegal midnight swims, raging hormones, and catastrophic holidays that will leave the entire family in total hysterics and thirsty for more.

Call Me Gene (eBook Edition)

eBook cover

The best thing about my job is that I now get paid for doing what I have always done – reading. All my life people have been handing me books saying “You have to read this.” And mostly I have ‘cause I love to read. Then I got into publishing and people started “handing me books” by mail and these days by email. How cool is that!

Last week a woman by the name of Celeste Bailey sent me an email telling me about her books on genetics: Call Me Gene. She even sent me a copy to read.

I have had special interest in genetics since the day I tried explaining hereditary traits to a very precocious seven year old.

She listened to my explanation very carefully. You could almost see the wheels turning in that little brain. After a moment she said. “Well, I think I have more of my Daddy’s genes than my Mommy's”. She was quiet for a moment and then added “But I’m not bald.”

Right then and there I decided that I should probably stick to reading and not try to be a teacher!

Fortunately, there are people in this world who are teachers. They seem to have a gift for making complex information simple and interesting! Celeste Bailey and her sister Lucy Eskeland are two of them.

Call Me Gene is quite literally fun! Yes, it is a kid’s book, aimed at 7th and 8th graders but I actually leaned a couple of things I didn’t know.

The graphics are great – simple, colorful and informative. By the time I was done, I had refreshed my knowledge about basic genetics, cell structure, cell reproduction, Mendel's heredity experiments, and dominant and recessive genes. The discussion on mutant genes and cloning was well written. You may or may not agree with their opinion about human cloning, but I do applaud them for at least addressing it.

This is a great book for anyone who is interested in genetics from the precocious seven year to her grandparents; and of course, her teachers.

Here’s the official stuff:

Call Me Gene-Third Edition is a science book describing the genetic code and the scientific advances in biotechnology. The book is appropriate for late elementary/middle-school students, either in the classroom or home school. The book is written in a narrative and easy-to-read approach. There are numerous colorful illustrations throughout the book.

"There is grandeur in this view of life....". Charles Darwin


Alec Klein's book takes a local and personal look at one of the nation's leading public schools for the gifted and talented. Observations witnessed at Stuyvesant to the nation at large, Klein chooses, instead, to focus on a few of the people who make this school exceptional. This book is an effortless read that offers personal and caring insight into the passions of learning and teaching. A Class Apart is a quintessentially American story!

Books of baseball wisdom are not unique - but this book is one-of-a-kind. The On Deck Circle of Life is a great read, one that I think is "So Cool." Dr. Rotbart's experience as a pediatrician and as a coach is evident on every page - he writes in an easy to understand, gentle style that kids and their parents will love.

Be sure to check below to receive your coupon code for a discount on these two eBooks.

A Class Apart eBook edition by Klein, Alec
Enter Stuyvesant High, one of the most extraordinary schools in America, a place where the brainiacs prevail and jocks are embarrassed to admit they play on the woeful football team. Academic competition is so intense that students say they can have only two of these three things: good grades, a social life, or sleep. About one in four Stuyvesant students gains admission to the Ivy League. And the school's alumni include several Nobel laureates, Academy Award winners, and luminaries in the arts, business, and public service. A Class Apart follows the lives of Stuyvesant's remarkable students, such as Romeo, the football team captain who teaches himself calculus and strives to make it into Harvard; Jane, a world-weary poet at seventeen, battling the demon of drug addiction; Milo, a ten-year-old prodigy trying to fit in among high-school students who are literally twice his size; Mariya, a first-generation American beginning to resist parental pressure for ever-higher grades so that she can enjoy her sophomore year. And then there is the faculty, such as math chairman Mr. Jaye, who is determined not to let bureaucratic red tape stop him from helping his teachers. He even finds a job for a depressed math genius who lacks a college degree but possesses the gift of teaching. This is the story of the American dream, a New York City school that inspires immigrants to come to these shores so that their children can attend Stuyvesant in the first step to a better life. It's also the controversial story of elitism in education. Stuyvesant is a public school, but children must pass a rigorous entrance exam to get in. Only about 3 percent do so, which, Stuyvesant students and faculty point out, makes admission to their high school tougher than to Harvard. On the eve of the hundredth anniversary of Stuyvesant's first graduating class, reporter Alec Klein, an alumnus, was given unfettered access to the school and the students and faculty who inhabit it. What emerges is a book filled with stunning, raw, and heartrending personalities, whose stories are hilarious, sad, and powerfully moving.

The On Deck Circle of Life eBook edition by Rotbart, M.D., Harley A
Everything a child needs to know about life can be learned from the dugout steps. Every pitch, hit, and play on the baseball field is its own life lesson. From taking charge under a pop fly, to taking risks on the base paths, to taking heart on the bench, THE ON DECK CIRCLE OF LIFE connects parents and their kids through the analogies, axioms, and allegories that baseball offers for life off the field. The author brings his unique perspective as pediatrician, teacher, kids' baseball coach, and parent to this book of 101 life lessons. As an internationally recognized pediatric specialist and professor, Dr. Harley Rotbart has been named to Best Doctors in America every year since 1996. As a kids' baseball coach, from T-ball through high school, Coach Harley has studied the fine points of a fine game. He has used baseball to guide his players, his patients, and his own kids in everything from homework, humility and helping others, to dating, driving and drugs. Written for kids of all ages to read, and for parents to read over their kids' shoulders, this is a warm and wise playbook for the game of life.

eBooks that feature Teachers and Cats


eBooks are a wonderful invention for students, teachers and parent. This week we celebrate teachers with Jonathan Kozol's compilation of Francesca's letters. They remind us that Teachers have tremendous chanlleges and awesome opportunities. On the lighter side we showcase the perfect "story hour" book. Kids are sure to love all of the books in Erin Hunter's Warrior Series.

Letters to A Young Teacher by Kozol, Jonathon

“In lovingly supportive letters to a young woman on her first job as a first grade teacher, Kozol brings us heartwarming stories of the magic of kids who delight in words like ‘wiggly’ and ‘wobbly,’ ‘bamboozle’ and ‘persnickety’–and who could resist a child called Pineapple? This remarkable book is a testament to teachers who not only respect and advocate for children on a daily basis but who are the necessary guardians of the spirit. Every citizen who cares about the future of our children ought to read this.” –Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar

“What a wonderful book! Anyone who cares about rebuilding our public education system should read it. I could not put it down!” –Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University

“This book cuts to the heart of the matter of what it means to be a teacher today. The truth about testing, vouchers and their impact on public schools–it’s all captured here. But here, too, we also experience the exhilaration of putting together lesson plans, the joys of comforting children, and the anxiety of a teacher’s first days in school. Francesca’s journey will leave you hopeful for our nation’s children.” –Reg Weaver, President, National Education Association

“Jonathan Kozol’s advice to the teacher Francesca shows all the qualities that make him the nation’s wisest and boldest and most clear-headed writer on education: his passion for teaching, his respect for students, his refusal to submit to the stifling demands of the educational bureaucrats in and out of government. He tells personal classroom stories with a refreshing honesty, and conveys the excitement and joy of preparing a new generation to remake the world. Teachers, students, parents alike will find this book inspiring.” –Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States

“With Letters to a Young Teacher, Jonathan Kozol reminds us that teaching remains a wonderful and essential calling. Committed, gifted teachers who recognize the 'inherent value' of every child are needed now more than ever. I hope this inspiring book will spark a new generation of teacher-leaders heeding Kozol's passionate call and example.” –Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund
