Dare to differ…Learning isn’t about grades…You won’t find yourself in a mirror
As I was checking out at the grocery store the other day, I picked up a book at the checkstand entitled, (Fail Not) by Alan Lohner. It was filled with pages of inspirational thoughts for teens and young adults. Ideas that we all need to remember once in a while. As the mom of two teenage daughters who will both be moving up to new schools next year, I grabbed one for each of them. Just a little something to keep on their bedstands for when they needed a little emotional pick me up. Here are a few more books that would be great gifts for any grad or student who is moving on to a new phase of life…
Before You Leap: A Frog’s Eye View of Life’s Greatest Lessons — This is a book for Muppet lovers of any age. Kermit shares his advice on the great milestones of life.
Oh, The Places You’ll Go — This book was actually written the year I graduated college and was read aloud at commencement by our class valedictorian. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place.
A Little Book of Tweets for Grads — A book full of inspiration, humor, and encouragement; all in 140 characters or less!
(Fail Not) — I love this book. I would get it for every teenager I know if I could. If you live in the Portland area, you can find it for sale at Bales Thriftway.
