Middle School Book Talk

Eight Habits of the Heart by Clifton Taulbert

Eight Habits of The Heart

If you would like to participate in our Middle School Book talk but didn't take part in the survey sent out earlier this school year. Please use the link to purchase the book on Amazon. Our plan is to have a combined book discussion with all participants at our March 11th PTA meeting at 7:30 PM.


"Using his own success as proof that by building strong communities, we build strong individuals, Taulbert revisits these elders and their lessons in Eight Habits of the Heart : Embracing the Values that Build Strong Families and Communities (Penguin Books; January 5, 1999; $9.95). Eight Habits of the Heart grew out of a commencement speech that Taulbert delivered in 1995 at the North Shore Country Day School in Winnetka, Illinois. Wanting to leave a lasting impression on America's future leaders, but not knowing exactly what to say, Taulbert illustrated the community building practices that he learned from Poppa Joe, Ma Ponk, Preacher Hurn, and others in his beloved Mississippi Delta."
