More About This Book

Overview

Through a series of notes, letters and e -mails, award-winning author and recording artist Bill Harley traces a student's path through his school years from Kindergarten to high school graduation. Rhonda Bennet's communication with her son's teachers gives readers a window into the successes and failures, joys and sorrows of a boy, his mother, and the teachers they encounter. The communications are sometimes brief, sometimes extended, and range from the mundane (the
Kindergartener who can't tie his shoes) to the deeply moving (the loss of a friend). With humor and insight, Harley gives us an idea of what is possible when parents and teachers are willing to communicate. These letters and notes will remind every parent and every teacher of their trials, challenges and surprises, and reaffirm the value in reaching out. As Harley notes in his introduction, it takes both the teacher and the parent, working together, to help a child through school and life. In a very readable, humorous and touching way, Harley asks all of us to be our best selves.

Amy Dickinson
Bestselling author, Syndicated columnist "Ask Amy"

"Between Home and School provides a simple and beautiful example of a Mom and her son's teachers collaborating for long-term school success."
