More on delivery...


Education and learning are subjects that everyone believes they know something about. The media has caused an imbalance in how teachers and children are portrayed especially in television and movies. Author and poet George Roberts, a teacher of 32 years in public schools, offers a collection of prose poems that focus on the universal themes of teaching and learning. He gives an honest and insightful view of how children's lives change over time in the presence of good teaching. Elfriede's Cat will enhance public discourse about education, highlight the work teachers are doing every day in their classrooms, and honor students as well as delight and entertain the reader.
