ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Tracy Kidder—the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Soul of a New Machine and the extraordinary national bestseller House—spent nine months in Mrs. Zajac's fifth-grade classroom in the depressed "Flats" of Holyoke, Massachusetts. For an entire year he lived among twenty schoolchildren and their indomitable, compassionate teacher—sharing their joys, their catastrophes, and their small but essential triumphs.
As a result, he has written a revealing, remarkably poignant account of education in America.(Publisher). Good +. Item #13397
