August Reads

Ah, August. It's a difficult month. It's almost always hot wherever you are and you live with the feeling that time's running out second by second. This is particularly true for those of us in education. I've lived by the "school year" all my life, with the exception of one trying year, and August always hits like a ton of bricks. August is a month of Sunday evenings.

Elizabeth Ward suggests a few new picture books in The Washington Post (free registration may be required. It's a good daily read, though, and worth it) for this difficult month. Victoria Chess's The Costume Party and Margie Palatini's The Three Silly Billies look particularly promising.


In other news, I am following the story Cindy Sheehan with great interest. I hope she gets the answers she deserves.
