Back to school: A book to get everyone inspired to return to learning

Looking for something to get your kids motivated to finish that summer homework or get excited about going back to school? 

Room to Read Founder John Wood's book is inspired by his experience delivering his first batch of books to Nepal. It's geared to ages 3-8, but the book is sweet and fun and inspiring for all ages. Buy it, along with the sequel, Zak the Yak and his New Friend Quack, here.  All profits go to Room to Read. Or download from iTunes. Each download puts three local language books into the hands of children in the developing world. 

A nice way to give a little back-to-school love.
