    Excellent book

    This was a very motivating and inspiring book. My six year old daughter loved it. She was very excited to read it on her own and even more excited to realize that she can do anything she puts her mind to.

    Excellent Read Especially for those with Little ones!

    My five yr old loved it! She begged me to let her take it to school so her teacher could read it to the class. Her words: "Mommy my Teacher is going to Love this story because they are talking about teachers & kids"

    Love it!

    Excellent classroom resource for teachers who have students with similar behavior problems and low self esteem.

    I purchased two copies of this little book - one for my great granddaughter who was having melt downs in her kindergarten class at least twice monthly, and one for her teacher to use in the classroom. My great granddaughter identified with the child in the book immediately, and reads the book at home almost every night. According to her mother and teacher, she is doing much better both at home and in the classroom. I'm told she hasn't had a melt down at school in several weeks. Her teacher is most appreciative that she was given a copy for the classroom, and my great granddaughter is so very proud that her Grandma gave a copy of "Because My Teacher Said I Can" to her teacher!

    Highly Recommended for school aged children!!!!!

    A student learns best when the educator creates a positive, respectful learning environment. When a child feels calm and safe they are able to participate actively in class and make better choices. Teachers who give constructive systematic feedback are opening a doorway for students to continue with positive learning goals... Hats off to Dr Jackson.. Job well done!! My 9 and 6 year old boys enjoyed reading all about little Amari, and how he came to believe in himself.

    Highly Recommended

    This is a very inspirational book. It reminds us just how powerful our words are to children. You never know what children are going through. It is very important, as teachers, that we encourage them each and every day. This book is a good reminder of this philosophy.

    Words of Inspiration can be powerful motivators for students who think they cannot achieve. This book tells the story on how words of encouragement from educators can change the mindset of a discouraged child to believe in themselves.

    A great inspirational read. Everyone has had that one teacher that stands above the rest, the one who pushed us, the one who believed in us when no one else did. This book is a tribute to that teacher. A must read for anyone.

    Highly Recommended-Absolutely Outstanding!!

    This is a very inspirational book for teachers and students. It reminds teachers that they play a vital role in a child's education. The words of encouragement and support of a teacher can stay with a child for a lifetime. As adults, we may not remember all our teachers, but there is always one special teacher(like the teacher in this book) that we will never forget. This book will make a great gift for teachers, students, friends, and family members.

    Highly Recommended!

    Dr. Jackson's book is very inspirational; whereas formal education is based on common core subject areas, we often forget that intrisic motivation is a part of a child's foundation. I recommend to all!
