Beautiful Hands by Kathryn Otoshi and Bret BaumgartenAugust is crazy-busy for teachers and parents of little learners, so grab this book for a quick-prep, interactive lesson: BEAUTIFUL HANDS by Kathryn Otoshi and Bret Baumgarten.

“Will they lift…/

spirits?/

Or stretch…/

imaginations?”

Just the right balance of shivery, heart-pounding action and original fairy tale, this is a fantastic classroom read-aloud/read-alone for grades 2 and up. Reading Shutta's work is like coming in close around the storyteller's fire. Pure delight.

Pax by Sara Pennypacker

Perfect for Battle of the Books! Alternating chapters between a boy, Peter, and his fox, Pax. War and loss and hope and betrayal - so many huge, heartfelt issues, and yet it didn't feel like "bibliotherapy". Wonderful.

Solid realistic fiction that brings up some issues without feeling too bibliotherapeutic. It starts off light, with fourth grader Lucy about to kiss a boy on the playground, and unfolds into a familiar friendship book - the former friend Becky who be ...more

Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Confucius
“And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.”
Confucius

Jalaluddin Rumi
“This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor...Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honorably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”
Jalaluddin Rumi

Kahlil Gibran
“When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth......

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself."

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.”
Kahlil Gibran, Le Prophète
