What We're Reading Sunday

Every once in a while I come across a book that I just can't put down. It might be a just for fun romantic comedy or an amazing teacher resource book. It really doesn't happen that often, but when it does, I am one happy camper! 

I am happy to say that this book right here is one of those reads! I am obsessed!
Brain Rules, 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School by John Medina is all about the brain. The book shares what scientists know about how our brain works-how exercise improves cognition, how memories are volatile, how sleep is powerfully linked to our ability to learn, and how stress changes the way we learn. 

I am about half way through and am loving it as a teacher, mom and woman! He tells the facts but also shares stories to go along with them. It's absolutely enjoyable and I wish I had a two hour block all by myself to sip coffee, take notes, and finish it! I just added the kid version to my cart!
As for T and I, we are reading Aesop's fables at bedtime. I highly recommend fables if you are looking to spice up night time reading! He is finishing the Fly Guy series and our latest Mo Willems addition on his own.

What are you reading?
