Children's LiteratureIn this riff on the familiar poem by C. Clement Moore, a teacher named Jane, with fifty years experience, muses as to whether she had a positive impact on her student's lives. The next twelve days demonstrate that she was indeed an influential force. Jill on the first day announces that she became a horticulturalist after tending bulbs in the classroom, as well as a pear tree. Tanya on the fourth day pursued a career in communications and is working for peace at the UN. On the tenth day, our teacher receives a call on her cell phone from a student who said that he was playing in her hometown--William it seems is a big NBA star. It ends on a happy note--Jane is glad she was a factor in so many lives and also is delighted that she learned from her many students. A nice stocking stuffer for any teacher or college student preparing to enter the field of education. 2005, Running Press, Ages Adult.
