Like My Teacher Always Said. . . : Weighty Words, Crazy Wisdom, the Road to Detention, and Advice We Could Never Forget, Even If We Tried
Weighty Words, Crazy Wisdom, the Road to Detention, and Advice We Could Never Forget, Even If We Tried
Erin McHugh's last two books, Like My Mother Always Said . . . and Like My Father Always Said . . . , pulled together a rainbow of savvy, humorous, and questionable wisdom from parents. Her next volume leaves home and heads for the classroom to celebrate what we gleaned from perhaps the most obvious candidates for learning: our teachers. The same quotation crowdsourcing McHugh has used so well before is at work again in Like My Teacher Always Said. . . . The book includes both full-page tales and short quips and is divided into chapters such as "Scare Tactics," "Advice That Stuck," and "Crazy Town. " The material is exceptionally rich and comes from a diverse roster of characters - from grade school instructors and piano teachers to Catholic school nuns, guidance counselors, coaches, and mentors. This book is a perfect way to inspire memories of student days and an ideal gift for teachers to show your appreciation for the influence they've had on your life.
Based in New York, Erin McHugh is a former publishing executive and author of more than twenty-five books of trivia, history, children's titles and more.
