    A must read for parents!!

    Really great advice for parents of pre-school through teen years. The book talks about everyday life and lessons as well as how to help your children academically. As a parent in the school district where Mrs. Jackson was principal, I can honestly say I looked forward to "Principally Speaking" coming home every month in the backpack and have loved reading the letters that she wrote before my child entered the district.
