"Davis weaves his stories as a craftsman weaves fin fabric. There are no holes." (Lexington Herald-Leader)
This is a story about teaching with a passion for learning not pouring facts into kids head. This was before the day of standardized test, when thinking was an important ingredient to learning. This is creative!! and exciting about what school could be like. Do you think that we are instilling these kinds of fond memories of school today. I hope so or I hope we will be inspired to do things differently.
The story is rated adult/teen - but it makes great family listening.
Who wasn't in the 4th grade. What class didn't think they could break that teacher in just so -- . Miss Daisy has a unique method of teaching and Davis has a wonderful way of telling a story. Look for others by Davis. He can be amusing and heartwarming.
