One devoted teacher will stop at nothing to show her class the wonders of the world. From soaring over the Great Wall of China to hang gliding in the Australian Outback, the class has all kinds of adventures, across all seven continents.
Because You Are My Teacher, a companion to Because You Are My Baby and Because I Am Your Daddy by the dynamic author-illustrator team of Sherry North and Marcellus Hall, is an exciting introduction to geography and makes a touching gift for any teacher who has broadened your child’s horizons. The book includes a note about the seven continents and each of the places or creatures mentioned in the book.
This is a great way to encourage the adventure of history and geography. It would be great for any teacher in a school or homeschool. The pictures are attractive to look at and there is a little mouse you can search for on every page. I think for me this is going to be a favorite to read again and again. To introduce a new topic bring it back as a reread and so on.
*Thanks to Abrams for providing a copy for review.*
