This book was such an inspiration the first time I read it, before I ever started teaching. I wanted to make a difference the way Marva did. I forgot about this book for years, then one summer day I came across it again at the library. Of course, I checked it out and again it inspired me. She does so much for these kids and does it her way. This copy I found at a library sale and had to get it. So every summer I pull it out and get reinspired.
