I love this sweet series about Precious Ramotswe, a woman in Bostwana who opens her own detective agency. I adored the HBO series based on it. Unfortunately, it will not return as a series, but there will be 2 Ladies' Detective movies on HBO--I hope soon!
Mentor Texts that Model and Encourage Goal Setting Another book I enjoy sharing with my students at some point along our journey together is Oh the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss. This one has been around a while, but sometimes we need refreshers to remember to pick them up. I think this is a "Planning for Life" book, so perhaps it would tie in nicely with long range plans.
