Hallelujah the kiddies are back to school! You feel my excitement coming through your computer screen? I love my babies but they were doing too much for my old ass. And since the kids are back in school they will be bombarded with homework including book reports. Those two words alone will put fear in even the toughest of kids. To have them actually read a book? The nerve of some of these teachers!
Thankfully some of those classics on the reading lists are offered in eBook form. And since everybody and their mama has a device with the capability to read eBooks it’s easier for students to read those literary greats wherever they are. So there should be no excuse as to why Sally Sue did not finish reading that book, but she will try tho.
Now before I give you the 10 names let me just say that I am an open-minded reader and actually love Leo Tolstoy and Jane Austin (if you don’t know them I suggest you Google them) however I do feel like the school need to upgrade the reading list. What about James Baldwin? Toni Morrison? Maya Angelou? Tananarive Due? Nikki Giovanni? You know where I’m going with this right?
