This uplifting, brightly colored picture book puts into words the true appreciation kids and parents feel for the teachers in their lives. Dear Teacher captures the in-the-moment feelings of safety and support children feel from their teachers, and the fond memories adults have of the teachers who made an impact on their lives. The snapshots of thanks in the sweet, engaging pictures of the diverse kids are rooted in emotions, the feeling that their teachers are in their corner, inspiring kids to be great and good people.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
