"I have just received the book Jim Aylesworth and You and I love it.  I always try to give the students a "sense" of the authors we study/discuss.  This book does not only that, but gives a great sense of where each book came from and what you were trying to do with each book.  What a great way to learn about books and writing.  Thanks!"
