In a poignant and heartfelt letter, an exhuberant former student who had difficulty reading reminisces about her ever-patient second grade teacher.
Dear Teacher, whenever I had something to tell you, I tugged on your shirt and whispered in your ear. This time I'm writing a letter.So begins this humorous but touching picture book about a girl who prefers running and jumping to listening and learning--and the teacher who gently inspires her. From stomping through creeks on a field trip to pretending to choke when called upon to read aloud, this book's young heroine would be a challenge to any teacher. But this teacher isn't any teacher. By listening carefully and knowing just the right thing to say, she quickly learns that the girl's unruly behavior is due to her struggles with reading. And at the very end, we learn what this former student is now: a teacher herself.
