Spring Break Reading Recommendations for Educators

Spring break is finally in sight! With winter break a distant memory and perhaps you’re dealing with the stress of moving back into the classroom, I’m sure it must be a huge relief to see a vacation on the horizon. Hopefully, you’ll find some time to relax, restore, and do the things that bring you JOY.

Something that brings us joy here at Literacy Partners is reading a good book. We’re back to share some of the titles we’ve enjoyed recently that we think you’ll enjoy as well.

Watch these short videos for some fiction, nonfiction, and professional book picks.

Dahlia’s recommendations:

Group: How One Therapist and a Circle of Strangers Saved My Life, by Christie Tate
I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness, by Austin Channing Brown
Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man, by Emmanuel Acho

Vivian’s recommendations:

The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
The Lazy Genius Way by Kendra Adachi
Troublemakers by Carla Shalaby

Let us know if you read any of these books or you’ve got some recommendations of your own to share. We’re always on the lookout for another great read.

Wishing you a wonderful spring break!

May it be filled with warmer days, good books, and moments of happiness.
