books that guide

“Read.” It is my favorite word (other than “accepted.”)[1] Being “well-read” provides an essential foundation for comprehension, critical thought, and communication. The amount of parenting and college admission books intended to help students and parents navigate the college journey may seem endless. Here, I share my favorites and must-have books. Look for seasonal “Recommended Reads” throughout the year and occasionally in newsletters.[1] Read Patrick Sullivan, English Professor’s “An Open Letter to High School Students about Reading”
