This first illustration captures the spirit of this book:
I love this page too,
The book sings praises to teachers who "soar through story after story" and learn about "life from new perspectives." And highlights teachers who teach children how to be creative and express themselves.
Coaches are teachers too:
Good teachers inspire by example (like volunteering) and create a safe place for learning to happen and for potential to be discovered.
Teachers care, comfort, and challenge.
The refrain, "I needed a teacher like you" is repeated throughout this book. I think, the teacher in your child's or grandchild's classroom need a book like this.
