For my students

Don't these pictures intrigue you?

Aren't you curious to find out what these doors are?

Do they lead anywhere?

What if you could travel to another place through one of those doors?

Have you planned your summer
travel reading list?

Are you one who might be rolling your eyes and thinking, "
Who makes a reading list?"

Well, just think of all the time you will have this summer! What a great time to spend in leisure traveling all over the world, and even into some imaginary worlds, through a good story.

Start thinking about a few books you should read for pleasure. Here are three to get you thinking: 100 Cupboards, Dandelion Fire, and The Chestnut King.

The first one is really good, the second better, and the third best.

Here's a video of author Nate Wilson on the Today Show.

My son heartily concurs with your opinion. We've read 100 Cupboards together as a family but I have yet to read Dandelion Fire and The Chesnut King.

Have you read Tilt-a-Whirl?

Miss you,
