Ranson, James. My Teacher. 32 pgs. Dial, 2012. $16.99. G- PICTURE BOOK. The narrator of this tender story details for the reader everything a teacher does for her students. From reading inspiring books, to teaching the students about Jazz, teachers inspire and encourage. The teacher in this book shares that being a teacher is all she ever dreamed of being, and that is why she loves her job so much. “I love teaching and being part of your lives. I love helping to make your dreams come true.” We loved the sentiment in this great book and enjoyed reminiscing about incredible teachers in our lives. This would make a great gift for any teacher and could be used in a unit on jobs or vocations. Pre-K. EL (K-3). ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: SL.
