~"To Sir, With Love" is a rare teaching story that compares with "Lean against the Wind."~
Sidney Poitier was the caring teacher in the British film.
Special Needs Children are a Joy
Anyone who has been around Special kids understands what a joy they are to have around. Has anyone written a book about special ed. people at all? I’ve have viewed a few TV shows over the last three decades and only one came close. It told a tale where a teacher organized a music review with her students and took it around the world. Cool!
Other than the cute teen movies about boy/girl relationships designed to appeal to teens, few serious books approach the subject. “To Sir, With Love” and “Up the down Staircase” come to mind. Reading these now, they seem dated and “To Sir, With Love” was very British—somewhat stuffy.
“Lean against the Wind” is a five star reading experience for general readers, suitable for young people too. Most anyone with a special member in the family will want to read this novelette. It will bring the reader closer to understanding them. Senior citizens will enjoy this too as much of the story involves a senior who is up against a gang of shysters who steal his estate. This part of the story is torn from today’s headlines.
Take a peek at some of the reviews, give it a read, and then add your own review. Thanks for stopping by. RJ
