About the book
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.
Praise for Because You Are My Teacher
"A sweet sentiment and a great way to get kids pumped about school and learning—Miss Frizzle would be proud."
"Hall’s watercolor illustrations capture the variety of locales, from sun-drenched deserts to cool-blue oceans... children will be interested in the different modes of transportation and out-of-the-ordinary sights."
—School Library Journal
"Whether reading this book on their own, or listening to it read to them, young children will certainly want to discover more about the places this teacher takes her class.”
—Library Media Connection
