Ted Zaleski
We are delighted to introduce the first in a series of bookmarks featuring books Ted Zaleskirecommended by great readers and leaders in Carroll County.  Our first great reader is Ted Zaleski, Carroll County Director of Management and Budget.  A lifelong learner, Ted regularly read books to his children.  One night his daughter asked him, “Why are we always reading books about boys?”  Ted notes, “Chastened by my daughter’s question I set out to find good books about girls.  It was harder than I expected.  They were out there, but I had to dig for them.  I began to wonder how many girls were being fed a diet of books about boys by default.  It occurred to me that other parents might be interested in the same kind of books I was looking for.”
