Summer vacation isn’t that far off for many Arizona students — next week in some districts. And, while there may be no more teachers for a little while, educators are hoping the old phrase stops there, and doesn’t continue on to “no more books.”

Radke is President of Chandler-based Five Star Publications, which has a kids’ division called Little Five Star.
