Reading Roundup Linky Party with Pitner’s Potpourri

Pitner’s Potpourri is having a Reading Roundup linky party.  Since I LOVE anything that has to do with reading I thought I’d take part in this linkup and share what is next on my reading list as well as check out what others are reading.  

The rules: share one professional book you want to read, one book you want to read strictly for pleasure, and one you want to use to teach a skill in your classroom. These are books you haven’t read yet but are on your To Read List! 

Remember to add the reading roundup button and a link back to Pitner’s Potourri to give credit to the original source.

Ok so here is my To Read List:

Professional Book:

Think Social! (Book and CD)Think Social By Michelle Garcia Winner  I hear so many great things about this book and Winner in general.  I have been wanting to order this book and buy it for some time now.  I need to just do it!

Personal Book: 

I have two that I really want to read right now:

The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B.1.)  The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. by Sandra Gulland (a historical fiction book written in diary format about Josephine Bonaparte)

I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag: A Memoir of a Life Through Events--the Ones You Plan and the Ones You Don't2.)  I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag by Jennifer Gilbert  This is a memoir of true events of the authors life…some very tragic and some wonderful…and how she survived to tell the tale.

Book to use in Therapy:

Have You Filled a Bucket Today?Have you filled a Bucket today?  by Carol MCcloud

This is a great book to teach children about caring for others, being kind, and even a great way to teach theory of mind to some of our kiddos who struggle with social skills.  REALLY want to use it in therapy….and I CAN’T wait for the perfect time!!!!  (most schools are now using this as part of their anti-bullying programs but I think it will also be perfect to teach social skills).

That’s my list.  What is yours?

Happy talking…and reading!!!
