We are seeking educational book reviews for our newest magazine column, “READERS FOR LEADERS,” but only for books that you have found valuable and would “recommend” to your colleagues. Educators are constantly looking for new ideas to use and share, but do not always have time to read new books.
It is our hope that this column will provide you with the latest in contemporary readings.

Book reviews should be no more than 350-400 words, written using APA style and must be submitted as a Word document (with a brief biographical sketch and a photo of the author). Authors may not be the book’s author since the purpose of the review is to provide information and NOT to sell books! In
addition, authors MUST include a written statement of any connection to the publication being reviewed. For example: The book being reviewed is part of a book selection for a principal certification course (OR…Administrator Professional Development). I have no affiliation with the author(s) or publishing company(ies) of the book(s) in the submitted book review(s).
