Bedtime Reads (for parents!)
Four books inspiring the LMNOP team this month:
A Family of Readers by Sutton Parravano (Candlewick Press)
Do you love to read but aren’t sure how to share that passion with your kids? Do you recall favourite books from your childhood but wonder what’s popular today? Do you wish you could find a guide that highlighted books for all stages of growing up? The editors at The Horn Book Magazine (the most respected review journal of books for young readers) explore and explain all of these questions and more. A fascinating read for book lovers.
Print Workshop by Christine Schmidt (Potter Craft)
Christine Schmidt’s introduction to the world of hand-printing suggests anyone who’s prepared to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in, can create any of the original projects inside. Adapted for the home printer, Schmidt shares easy to follow, tips and techniques and preaches that ‘uneven’ and ‘imperfect’ is just right!
Enchantment by Guy Kawasaki (Portfolio Penguin)
Rasberry Kids’ Sue Sinclair introduced us to this fantastic book by the former chief evangelist of Apple, Guy Kawasaki. Want to know how to charm, delight, and enrapture your clients, customers, neighbours, or anyone you interact with for that matter? Then this book is a must-read. If you find wisdom in Seth Godin’s work, you’ll become of fan of Kawasaki’s teachings too.
Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff (Little, Brown and Company)
The Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer brings to life the most intriguing woman in the history of the world: Cleopatra, the last queen of Egypt.
