Among Schoolchildren by Tracy Kidder (1990)

$4.99

Overview

Paperback in Very Good (VG) condition.

Among School Children is more than a book about needy children and a valiant teacher; it is full of the author’s genuine love, delight and celebration of the human condition.”  —New York Times Book Review

Tracy Kidder—the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Soul of a New Machine and the extraordinary national bestseller House—spent nine months in Mrs. Zajac's fifth-grade classroom in the depressed "Flats" of Holyoke, Massachusetts. For an entire year he lived among twenty schoolchildren and their indomitable, compassionate teacher—sharing their joys, their catastrophes, and their small but essential triumphs. 

As a result, he has written a revealing, remarkably poignant account of education in America.
