Looking for a teacher gift for the holidays? A Teacher's 12 Days of Christmas is a small stocking stuffer book that fits the bill. In its slightly awkward verses, Jane looks back on a long career - fifty years of devoted teaching.

It opens, 'So willingly she'd labored, but / this Christmas night asked she, / "I'd like THIS question answered: / Did my students / learn from me?"' And for the subsequent twelve days, Jane hears from ex-students what they have done with everything she taught them.

These twelve informative days end aptly with a final thought from Jane about lifelong learning. Give this sweet, candy-striped book to a favorite teacher for the holidays - I know exactly who's getting my copy.
