Educator and acclaimed poet Taylor Mali honors the magic of teachers and mentors in this joyful, energetic, uplifting gift audiobook.

Easy teachers who gave easy tests are not the teachers I loved the best....

Perfect for Teacher Appreciation Week and graduation, here is an inspirational, rhyming audiobook ode to the extra-special teachers we remember all those years later.

Children will love seeing themselves and their favorite teachers in scenes bursting with positivity, highlighting not just academics but sports, drama, art, music, and community. And teachers will appreciate seeing their honored profession depicted with love and gratitude.

Here is an audiobook that celebrates the commitment and diversity of the special people who mentor, lead, and inspire our children.
