This book contains insight into the 34 year relationship between a teacher and his student writers as well as the original book that was published in 1978.
Ann Arthur, Linden Jackson, Lori Johnson, Crystal Kornegay, Beth Wallace, and Reggie Wright each wrote entries, thoughts, poems, etc. for parents when they were just children. The book focuses on the truth that kids are people and should be treated as such.
Parents should read this book to remind themselves that children are smart and do understand more than they are usually given credit. Readers will enjoy this easy read that is an inspiration for all adults.
The biggest lesson from this book that I hope people would take away is that children deserve love, respect, and understanding.
