Congrats to Alison for winning last week's Mom's Summer Reading giveaway!

If you didn't win, I have great news for you.  You can get any of the books I mentioned for just $1.99 each until Thursday!





Featured Post from Last Week



Lisa, from Golden Grasses, shares some great thoughts on memorization in her post People of the Book.  "He could have read the speech and enjoyed it and left it at that. But memorizing the speech and presenting it wrote the words on his heart, they are now part of the book of his life. He owns them forevermore."  I love this perspective of memorization!

Summer Reading for Mom


This post contains affiliate links.
Pin It

Summer is here!  Well, at least the weather feels like it, and most folks are getting ready to take a break or at last change pace for the next couple of months.

That means that you, mom, might have a little extra time on your hands, or at least a different type of time.  Fewer formal school lessons, less time in the car taking your kids to and from co-ops and such.  More time enjoying the outdoors and watching your children have fun playing in the sun!  Perhaps you will even have a vacation in there somewhere!

I encourage...no, challenge...you to take advantage of this change of pace by making time to READ!

If you are anything like me, you do plenty of reading in the school year.  I read tons and tons of picture books, living books, children's chapter books, text books, teacher's guides, etc.  What I don't always get around to is reading books for me!

It is so important that we, as moms, are also nourishing our souls with good and beautiful writing, and continuing to pursue our own education.

So, what are you going to read this summer?


Can we brainstorm together?  Here are some ideas that I have, and you leave a comment sharing your ideas with me!

Books to encourage you as a teacher:
