Calling All Book Lovers

Today is National Book Lovers’ Day, one of our favorite national holidays here at Pear Deck HQ!

As a team of educators and bibliophiles, we made the most of the long summer days by packing in extra reading time whenever we could find it. Before summer comes to a close and we head into the school year, we’re sharing our team’s favorite books of the season. Whether you’re trying to squeeze in one last book before the end of the summer or looking for a recommendation for your next book club, here are a few recommendations!
