Book review for P is for Pirate

Book Review: P is for Pirate

I've never seen anything like this book for teachers. But that is a good thing. In this day and age of crazy busy-ness, this may just be the perfect book for quick inspiration!

P is for PIRATE: Inspirational ABC's for Educators looks like a children's book but reads like an inspirational kick in the pants for teachers who want to be awesome. I could see a whole school create a 26 week PD for teachers around each letter of the alphabet.

My head was nodding yes. I wanted to underline, but the book is just too beautiful. I'm going to keep this by my desk and read a letter and focus on one each day. I just love it! (As I was thinking about it, someone on Twitter reminded me about my Planning to Teach from A to Z  that I blogged some time back. Using the alphabet is such a powerful way to ponder our profession.)

Dave and Shelley Burgess have truly leveled it up. They've taken this idea into bite sized pieces to remind us who we are.

I highly recommend this book for every single school's teaching library but, I'd call up Dave and get a bulk book deal and get it for every teacher in your school. It is that inspirational.

I believe not only do they have another best seller on their hands but that we'll be seeing great things from these two authors for many years to come. They'll have us all saying arggg (in good ways) before finishing.

Great book for teachers. Buy it now. (It is worth buying in Hard cover!)

I received a review copy of this book but have not been compensated in any way for this endorsement.
