Oct 26,  · The book Julie & Julia was quite good, (though the movie was in a lot of ways better) and has to do with the life of a big fan of Julia Child but it was super easy to read. Another book I thought of was “eat pray love” while she goes to Italy and not France it’s still a fun engaging light read. With books that are engaging and interesting, I hope to change that. I want to provide my students with both nonfiction and fiction books that will extend the learning they gain in my classroom. These books are informational but they are also engaging and will help my students hone their reading skills and learn more history.

[Request]: Engaging Chinese history books I've lived in China on and off for the last five years and have managed to pick up dribs and drabs of Chinese history through travel and personal research, but I'd really love to read a more comprehensive history of China.
