🥟🥟🥟 This bright book is a sweet way to open up communication with kids about being perfectly imperfect. It’s a great tool to reassure children that mistakes are natural and we can all learn from them. School-age children may be facing anxiety over their “work” and this is a great reminder that mistakes can even lead to better situations once we accept and learn from them. The illustrations have that childlike quality that is so appealing to little ones. And shorts on your head is always funny, and that’s no mistake.
When “go to bed” actually means “go read”. What book are you going to bed with tonight? #readingislife

I bought a new candle ... and I might be joining a book club. The March selection is Fruit of the Drunken Tree by Ingrid Rojas Contreras. I hope it’s good.
From Amazon: Seven-year-old Chula and her older sister Cassandra enjoy carefree lives thanks to their gated community in Bogotá, but the threat of kidnappings, car bombs, and assassinations hover just outside the neighborhood walls, where the godlike drug lord Pablo Escobar continues to elude authorities and capture the attention of the nation. When their mother hires Petrona, a live-in-maid from the city's guerrilla-occupied slum, Chula makes it her mission to understand Petrona's mysterious ways. But Petrona's unusual behavior belies more than shyness. She is a young woman crumbling under the burden of providing for her family as the rip tide of first love pulls her in the opposite direction. As both girls' families scramble to maintain stability amidst the rapidly escalating conflict, Petrona and Chula find themselves entangled in a web of secrecy that will force them both to choose between sacrifice and betrayal. Inspired by the author's own life, and told through the alternating perspectives of the willful Chula and the achingly hopeful Petrona, Fruit of the Drunken Tree contrasts two very different, but inextricably linked coming-of-age stories. In lush prose, Rojas Contreras has written a powerful testament to the impossible choices women are often forced to make in the face of violence and the unexpected connections that can blossom out of desperation. .

Books unlock the mindset. Books give you advice that can change one's perspective. Sometimes I buy a book and look for even one piece of advice that can upgrade my level of thinking and use that piece of information to change my way of thinking, to point me in new directions.
Those who don't read or at least seek knowledge will always be behind others that do. Bill Gates reads more than one book a month but the average American only reads 1-2 books per year. Imagine the amount of knowledge you could acquire if you read every day for even just 15 minutes?
