Math. I was never great at it. In fact, for a while math homework brought me to tears. Now, I watch my daughter face the same struggle. I am determined to break the cycle. Math is just another way to understand our world. Luckily, there are some authors who do a much better job than I do of making that clear.
Who are the superheroes in your life?
I was looking for an inspiring, funny book to get into the spirit of the 2015 Summer Reading Program theme, "Every Hero Has a Story," when suddenly, my colleague and friend Ronda handed me the book, Superdog: The Heart of a Hero by Caralyn Buehner. I am the kind of person who never refuses to read a story with a dog as a protagonist, and Superdog is no exception. I went through it at lightning speed. In fact, I read the whole book while I was at the service desk, chuckling and laughing out loud all along.
