  1. Hi Sandi,

    I love the idea of posting your favorite professional books and resources. Can I take this idea into my blog to use?

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Now I'm your newest follower!

    First Impressions

  2. Absolutely, Dee. I look forward to seeing your fave professional inspirations.


  3. How have I never looked at these videos. So glad I have terrible insomnia and decided to really study your blog.

  4. Great roundup Sandi :)
    'Designs for Living and Learning' was one of the first books I bought after having children and, now as an Early Childhood teacher, I look at it often. Loved 'Play' too. Will have to add some of the others to my reading pile.

    Sir Ken Robinson is such an inspiring speaker. I love his 'Do schools kill creativity?' clip too.

  5. Have not come across QUIET but added it to my list. Thanks for the great idea to share our professional reads! Today was our final Yoga on the Beach, really feels like summer has ended, a perfect time to restock our reading pile.

  6. Okay I am finally sitting down on my beach chair and opening Quiet by Susan Cain. I'll check in again next week. Liz ;)

  7. Great resources! Some I have already familiarized myself with and others are now on my ''to read'' list :)
