As a very experienced teacher, I'm profoundly moved by the message in The North Star. So rarely in education do we find tools for dealing with the incredibly important affective aspects of learning. How one feels, especially how one feels about oneself, is crucial in the learning process. This book and philosophy help children learn to trust themselves, and become open to learning in very positive ways. Peter Reynolds is a genius who has synthesized our deepest questions in positive ways into a story that is accessible to all.
