My girls are I are a little obsessed with gift giving right now. We wrack our brain to find the right gift for each person. If the present delights and amuses, we know we have a winner. It’s not about spending a lot of money per se, it’s more about finding a personal connection from that person to the gift, which means trying to remember obscure details from past conversations to nail that gift.
Teacher gifts can be hard. Principal gifts even harder. It’s not like you really hang out with your school’s principal! Did your art teacher do something amazing for your child? Ours nominated my daughter for a special arts summer camp which set her down a happy path that she’s now pursuing.
I’ve personally used many of these books to gift to my kids’ teachers. I hope you enjoy these books too; both reading them with your kids and perhaps even gifting one to a special teacher or educator in your life.
How about you? What’s a special gift that you like to give to teachers? Thanks for sharing!
Thank You, Mr. Falker by Patricia Polacco
This is by far my favorite gift to any amazing teacher. Mr. Falker is a real person that helped Patricia Polacco to overcome her dyslexia but I’d use this book for any teacher that goes above and beyond for his or her students. [picture book, ages 5 and up]
