At a time when teachers are taking sick leave in unprecedented numbers, this book could not be more timely. Written by an Occupational Therapist who helps recovering teachers get back to the classroom in British Columbia, it is full of affirmation for teachers, with practical help for all teachers – well or not.
Larry Swartz is a favourite author for teachers of mine. His books are always full of lessons and ideas I can take right to the classroom. This book does not disappoint.
This picture book is about having a growth mindset. The little boy is having difficulty with his art and is encouraged to continue trying, which he does.
