    "I recently read the book "36 Children", and I found it being very beautiful, despite, or maybe thanks, to its simplicity. The book talks about an aspiring teacher, and about the challenges he will face in his profession. A beautiful title, suitable for readers of any age."

    "This book is oriented more towards students than teachers, with tips on how to employ rhetoric and create arguments for academic writing. It was incredibly useful to me in my classes and taught me a lot about adopting different perspectives to develop an argument well. While it is better for students than teachers, it would be a great resource for a teacher to have on hand to offer to students. Teachers are guides, and this book is a guide too!"

    "Now I dont know if this is a best book for every teacher. Not every teacher will specialize in science. You'll need a more general teaching book and not something focused so much on a single subject. I believe there are much better more specific books out there that can fulfill the category."
