One year after opening her first company, Davielle Jackson, at the young age of twenty-six, was partnered with Walmart, a retail giant, which is deemed impossible. It was at that point that she decided she wanted full control over her own life, her own destiny, and wanted to make her own money. With that noted, she dropped out of medical school, resigned from her job, and followed her passions and dreams. In 2016 she was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year and graced the cover of the Atlanta Business Journal, leaving her mark in history as being one of the youngest to achieve both. Being approached by an overwhelming amount of people asking how she accomplished these things at such a young age and in such a short amount of time prompted Davielle to write Ready, Set, Go! Always being in negotiations for new business ventures and the formation of new companies didnt leave time to address everyones questions, so she decided to instead give them the green print. Ready, Set, Go! is the green print to her success. This is Jacksons way of paying it forward and inspiring others to live their dreams and live for themselves while also being financially free.

As authors of The Book Club Cookbook, the classic guide to integrating great food and food-related discussion into book club gatherings, Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp hear a common refrain from parents, librarians, teachers, community leaders and kids themselves: "How about writing a book for kids' book clubs?"

Based on surveys representing five hundred youth book clubs across the country and interviews with parents, kids, educators, and librarians, The Kids' Book Club Book features: _- the top fifty favorite book club reads for children ages eight to eighteen; _- ideas and advice on forming great kids' book clubs-and tips for kids who want to start their own book clubs; _- recipes, activities, and insights from such bestselling children's book authors as Christopher Paolini, Lois Lowry, Jerry Spinelli, Nancy Farmer, Christopher Paul Curtis, Andrew Clements, Laurie Halse Anderson, Norton Juster, and many others. From recipes for the Dump Punch and egg salad sandwiches included in Kate DiCamillo's Because of Winn-Dixie to instructionson how to make soap carvings like the ones left in the knot-hole of a tree in Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, this book provides a bounty of ideas for making every kids' book club a success.

Leadership and Literacy

This book focuses on what school leaders need to know and understand about leadership for learning, and for learning to read in particular. It brings together theory, research and practice on leadership for literacy. The book reports on the findings from six studies that followed school principals from their involvement in a professional learning program consisting of five modules on leadership and the teaching of reading, to implementation action in their schools. It describes how they applied a range of strategies to create leadership partnerships with their teachers, pursuing eight related dimensions from a Leadership for Learning framework or blueprint. The early chapters of the book feature the use of practical tools as a focus for leadership activity. These chapters consider, for example, how principals and teachers can develop deeper understandings of their schools’ contexts; how professional discussions can be conducted with a process called ‘disciplined dialogue’; and how principals might encourage approaches to shared leadership with their teachers. The overall findings presented in this book emphasise five positive positions on leadership for learning to read: the importance of an agreed moral purpose; sharing leadership for improvement; understanding what learning to read involves; implementing and evaluating reading interventions; and recognising the need for support for leaders’ learning on-the-job.
