The Seattle Book Review - A Teacher Like You

“This book spoke to my heart because I have been a schoolteacher, bible class teacher and now I’m a parent and homeschool teacher. This just felt like a big hug reminding me that whether in the classroom or at home what I do is important. I think it’s a great message for kids too … Age Recommendation: Three to one-hundred years old.”

The Tiny Activist - A Teacher Like You

“This book is the third installment of the “A _____ Like You” series, and once again the story knocks it out of the park! The narrative flows from page to page, discussing the impact and originality of every teacher.”

Maya's Book Nook - A Teacher Like You

“Think about every amazing teacher you’ve ever had and you will see something they did reflected in this book. Every sentence celebrates the wisdom, joy, love, and nurturing characteristics of the teachers who contributed to us becoming the adults we are today. Add in a personal note from your child and this will be a gift teachers will always treasure.”
