A thoughtful, helpful review with a teacher's eye: Blue Ocean Bob Discovers His Purpose by Brooks Albrys.

"Blue Ocean Bob's message is that happiness comes from pursuing your passion, or more simply put, "follow your dreams." The beautiful illustrations in Blue Ocean Bob create a lively seaside world and the maps let readers track Bob's journey to Doc's Lagoon."

A Teen's perspective of Titanic: Voices from the Deep by Deborah Hopkinson.

"I personally loved this book, but I am a little bit of a nerd and truly enjoy learning about historic events. Even if non-fiction events are not your thing, I'm sure you will still enjoy this book. This book is so wonderfully written you will struggle to put it down."

Who knew? This is a quote from a 1916 article in The Atlantic Monthly.

“Bibliotherapy is…a new science,” Bagster explains. “A book may be a stimulant or a sedative or an irritant or a soporific. The point is that it must do something to you, and you ought to know what it is. A book may be of the nature of a soothing syrup or it may be of the nature of a mustard plaster.”

This quote, from an interview with Paul Polman has stuck with me for weeks. Lillian Cunningham's entire article is a fascinating, thought-provoking read.

"The moment you discover in life that it's not about yourself, that it is about investing in others, I think you're entering a steadier state to be a great leader. Because above all, I think the main quality of a leader is to be a human being. There's no reason you are special because you happen to have this job or this office or these responsibilities."
