Life Is So Good

Want a feel-good, pick-me-up, make-you-smile-big book to read?? "Life Is So Good" by George Dawson and Richard Glaubman is the book for you! George Dawson, the grandson of a slave, grew up in segregated Texas. He was a hard worker with integrity, respect and pride. His stories of his upbringing are powerful, but his unrelenting ambition and pride are what makes his story so special. Mr. Dawson learned to read at 98 years old and lived to 103. His stories in this can't-put-it-down book are inspiring and heartfelt. Now that the rainy season is here, grab a copy of this book (I found mine at Matt & Jeff's car wash in Novato!), a blanket and some hot cocoa. I promise you'll love it! I'll leave you with a quote that just felt so fitting for this post:

'If you can read this, thank a teacher.'
