The first of many books about teaching young children, Vivian Paley records her life as a white teacher creating a classroom that is responsive to children of all races. Always reminds me to think about myself in relation to my students. There is always so much to learn.
Wally's Stories is itself a story: the story of the evolution of a kindergarten classroom in which Vivian Paley learned to stop fighting childish fantasy and instead make use of it to stimulate the very best brand of thinking her five year-olds can muster.
