I'm pretty sure this children's book should have been for adults! I LOVED every inch of this tender story. BUT I am sure kids will enjoy it as well. Deborah Hopkinson's A Letter to My Teacher is a picture book that tells the story of a little girl who finds school hard because she just wants to be busy! She is a typical second grader with lots of energy but, thankfully, she is given a teacher who "gets" her. She is writing the story as a letter back to her second grade teacher to thank her. It's a sweet, sweet story that deserves to be shared.
