Remember that special teacher who touched your heart and mind, who inspired you, believed in you, or maybe just gave you a glimpse of what you might achieve and who you might become?

This book honors teachers, as well as counselors, coaches, and other special adults in children’s lives, and the impact these special people can have on the young lives they touch. 

Here are entertaining, inspiring, and moving stories from people of all ages, all professions and all backgrounds. Some are famous—Jimmy Carter, Les Brown, Dave Barry, Shari Lewis, Steve Allen, Zig Ziglar, Bernie Siegel, Leo Buscaglia and many well-known educators and authors—while others are ordinary folks with extraordinary stories.

The book includes delightful comments from kids around the world with their ideas about what makes a really great teacher. A great “Teacher Appreciation” gift!
