I read this when I was in high school for my Elementary Teaching Internship class, and I absoultey fell in love with the children and the compassion this teacher had for them. I am going to college to become a teacher and this helped me change my minor into Child Psychology and Special Education. I have read many of her books since then and love everyone.

This is a great book. After reading this book, I realized how special this woman truly is. Working with troubled children myself, I can relate to a lot of her stories. This is a must read for everyone.

Torey L. Hayden is an amazing author and an even more amazing woman. The love and dedication she shows each of her students in every class she has ever written about is astounding. I am an avid reader of her books, and they are the only books that I have never given up. I read them all at least once a year. I got my first Torey L. Hayden novel when I was 11, and still read them at 21. I am not someone who is involved with children, or teaching, but I believe her books have a lesson for all of us. It's about accepting people who are different, and loving them despite thier problems. I would recomend these books to anyone who believes that a bigger heart can make a difference.

I FIRST READ THIS BOOK BACK IN 1982,PASSING MY COPY ON TO A FRIEND TO ENJOY. THE STORIES TOLD, AND THE AUTHORS STYLE OF WRITTING,IS COMPELLING AND UNFORGETABLE,ONE YOU WILL NOT SOON FORGET. I PURCHASED A SECOND COPY TODAY,IMMEDIATELY RECOGNIZING THE TITTLE AND AUTHOR,AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. A TIMELESS WORK, DON'T MISS THIS ONE.

I would recommend this book higly to anyone that deals with children on a daily basis whether they are parents or teachers. Though I do not yet have any children of my own, I do have a younger brother who is autistic. My dream job is that of a special education teacher or pretty much anyone that deals with special needs children of any kind. To meet Torey Hayden would mean a lot to me for she has become my inspiration and reinfored in my mind that working with speacial needs children can be a very rewarding, but sometimes stressful career.

Hayden does a service by providing a voice for kids who have none. A man from Massachusetts named Ken Grant also wrote a book about his experiences good and bad but was driven into homelessness and bankruptcy by hostile forces because of it. Grant was an abandoned abused youngster in state care.

I could not put this book down. It was soo touching. You get drawn into each child's individual story and find yourself rooting for and feeling for each and every one. Torey's endless love and dedication to what is quite obviously more than a job to her is amazing. I have never felt such strong emotions from reading a book before... a lot to think about, a lot to enjoy, a *wonderful* way to escape into another world and forget about your own troubles for a while. Torey, you are truly a gem, do you hear that? You are simply amazing!

I'm an avid reader. I read anything and everything I can get my hands on, yet I've never been as moved by one author or one story as I have from this book. Torey Hayden's caring and understanding...not to mention patience, is to be admired. To her, every child is beautiful, no matter what they have done or who they are. When everyone else gives up on these children, she shows up to love them. That is what it's all about.

¿Somebody Else¿s Kids¿ by Torey L. Hayden is about a young special education teacher. She made it her responsibility to help four mentally impaired and disturbed children learn to read, write and understand they are different. The book went through many ups and downs. From Torey trying to teach Lori to read, helping Boo to talk and helping Tomaso deal with his anger. She taught them to deal with their disabilities and accept they¿re different. If you have a place in your heart for mentally challenged children this is a wonderful book to read. You will be amazed at the love and heart Torey (the teacher) has for these kids. The time and effort that Torey puts in her work could make anyone appreciate people like her. This is a one time read book I wouldn¿t suggest buying it. I would suggest checking it out at your town library.
