Fall Into A Good Book

THE FAVORED DAUGHTER is a rare find; a biography of an Afghani woman written by that woman. Fawzia Koofi, born to her father's seventh wife, tells her story of growing up female in war-torn Afghanistan. While disclosing her personal loves and trials she also illuminates the story of the country she loves. Koofi was born into a tribal society, lived through her teenage years in a country torn by war with Russia, was a young adult and married woman during the rule of the Taliban, and now works hard to represent her people in the Afghani National Assembly, as well as provide for and train her two young daughters. Her story is nothing short of amazing. A great read! --Sherrie M., Library Staff

THE BATTLE HYMN OF THE TIGER MOTHER. Both provocative and laugh-out-loud funny, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother ignited a global parenting debate with its story of one mother's journey in strict parenting. Amy Chua argues that Western parenting tries to respect and nurture children's individuality, while Chinese parents typically believe that arming children with skills, strong work habits, and inner confidence prepares them best for the future. This book chronicles Chua's iron-willed decision to raise her daughters, Sophia and Lulu, the Chinese way - and the remarkable, sometimes heartbreaking results her choice inspires.

A LONG WAY FROM CHICAGO. In this classic Newbery Honor book, Joey and his sister spend nine unforgettable summers with the worst influence imaginable--their grandmother! Grandma continually astounds her citified grandchildren by stretching the boundaries of truth. In eight hilarious episodes spanning the years 1929-1942, she plots outlandish schemes to even the score with various colorful members of her community, including a teenaged vandal, a drunken sheriff and a well-to-do banker. The best children's books can be read and enjoyed by adults. This is a choice one, with sequels!
