The Two of Us: A Book About My Teacher and Meby Jim Dale
Sometimes you just have to raise your hand and take a chance. With its profound simplicity and vibrant illustrations, The Two of Us: My Teacher and I collects important truisms shared between teachers and their pupils, and captures the essence of this often special bond. The best day for a test is always tomorrow, but sometimes it has to be today. Everyone, even teachers, looks forward to recess. You may not care what you pack in your lunch in the morning, but you will at noon. People who seem to have all the answers usually have a lot of them wrong. Really good teachers can teach and teach and never run out of things to teach. Some really smart people were a little messy with their homework, like Madame Curie and Albert Einstein. My teacher and I could be friends. In fact, we are. For students looking to celebrate the end of the school year and honor a particularly special teacher, The Two of Us: My Teacher and I is the ideal way to say, "Thank you for a great year."
