Please note that I make a concerted attempt to make sure all my book lists are diverse and feature protagonists from all walks of life; these are book lists specifically targeted at diversity.


Are you looking for picture books about a particular topic? Dragons, moons, snow, math or picnics, for example? I try to find out of the box topics as well as more common ones. I take the time to read every book I recommend.


I currently share 1-4 lists each year of my favorite newly published picture books. I’m sort of a nerd when it comes to following the latest publication trends and I love to apprise you of my findings!


I have a huge soft spot for poetry but I know it can be a tricky thing to love for many people. That’s why I advise you approach poetry with baby steps. No need to start with Byron. My goal is for you and your family to come to learn to love poetry and I’m confident these books will do the trick! You might also enjoy our 5 Week Poetry Reading Challenge, or my post about 8 ways to include poetry in your family’s daily routine.

Most people have a level of uncertainty on where to get help in how to choose a career and career guidance. There are 3 basic steps that a person can take to help them with the question of How to Choose a Career. Listed below are several suggestions to help you choose a career. These steps are especially helpful for students as they develop a career plan.

Steps in Choosing a Career

Step One
Figure out where your career interests are by asking yourself:
  • Where do my interests lie?
  • What do I do well and enjoy?
  • What kind of personality do I have?
  • What’s really important to me?
  • What are my values?

Take any career-related tests your college’s career center might offer, or take an on-line career assessment such as the Career Liftoff® Interest Inventory to help you figure out how to choose a career. Draw on your own life experiences on jobs, classes or other opportunities that you may have particularly enjoyed. Remember, this is very personal and is all about you! Choosing a career can be very satisfying with the right help.

Step Two
Learn about your career options. Rarely do you have the opportunity to take a class in college that shows you what the work world as it actually exists. You have to take the initiative to explore it yourself. See if your college’s career office has a library of books describing different kinds of work, the typical qualifications needed and the salary ranges for various occupations. Your college’s career counselors should be able to help. Also, talk to people through informational interviews, and try out careers by shadowing and taking internships or part-time jobs. The more career planning that you can do as a student, the better prepared you will be when you start to look for your first job.
Step Three
A third part of how to choose a career is to sort out your priorities for a career. After you’ve spent time on steps one and two, some of your strong preferences may start to emerge. You might learn you don’t want to be in an office environment. Or you might find that your interest in art wouldn’t sustain a career, so you cross those types of jobs off your list. Whatever it is that you learn about yourself, you’re making important discoveries that will help you choose a good career when the time comes. This is a major component of career planning for students.
Most importantly, keep it all in perspective: You don’t have to live forever with any career decision you make in these phases of student career planning. Most people change careers several times during their lives, so the first job you choose right after college probably won’t be your career 15 or 20 years from now — unless you want it to be. So don’t put too much pressure on yourself to make the perfect decision, and always keep your eyes open, and use all available resources in your journey to find how to choose a career.
