My Brilliant Best Friend by Elena Ferrante
I loved this book. I spent some time in Italy as a child, went to school there and made friends. This book instantly took me back to that time. It’s so well written in so much detail, Ferrante makes the ordinary into the extraordinary.Â
No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference by Greta Thunberg
I buy this book as wee presents and stocking fillers. It’s about $5, a very short read but possibly one of the most important in our times. I feel it should be part of the education curriculum, all ages are able to read it. Greta is one of my idols, she is clear about her climate change message and has the courage to stand up and speak about it.Â
The Fox and the Star by Coralie Bickford-Smith
I read this book often to my five-year-old son, itâ€™s so dreamy and each page is beautiful enough to put in a frame.
This Changes Everything by Naomi Klein
Naomi Klein is straight to the point and outlines issues of capitalism vs the climate. An instant New York Times bestseller, it’s a read for everyone in 2020 living in a world where I feel these are such pressing issues and conversations we should be having.Â Â
On the Road by Jack Kerouac
I read this book a long time ago but it left an imprint on my mind. To this day there is nothing better than the feeling of letting go of the day-to-day worries and pressures and just simply living in the moment and getting lost in the adventure.Â
