I really enjoyed reading this book and I feel that there were many lessons that one could learn from this teacher and her students. This book helped me to better understand what the children I work with are thinking and feeling. I found many parallels between myself and this teacher. I enjoyed reading about her thoughts and discoveries. I would recommend this book to anyone who works with young children. It really can open your eyes to a whole new world!
