It's no wonder that this gem is a New York Times Bestseller! I had the chance to read this one in my local bookshop today, and it was absolutely wonderful. It immediately took me back to my childhood and reminded me of my favorite teachers. Because I Had a Teacher is endearing, heartwarming, and sure to be a classic. Kobi Yamada (author) and Natalie Russell (illustrator) knocked this one out of the park!
