Okay, so this is not exactly related to teaching, or to kindergarten, BUT you must read this book! I started it on the beach and devoured it in two days. It is one of the most wonderfully written books I have ever read, and the message is powerful to say the least. The Help is Kathryn Stockett's first novel. It is fictional, but many of the details are based on her childhood experiences in Mississippi in the racially charged early 1960's. I highly recommend that you grab this book and give it a read before school starts up. It is absolutely positively worth it!
Also, a movie based on this novel is coming out on August 12th. The trailer looks great... I can't wait to see it! I might have to read the book again before then, too :)
