Do you have someone in your life that has inspired or encouraged you?

I do.  It’s my mom.

As a child, she always encouraged my creativity.  Whether by telling me I did a great job, or by teaching me to sew and create weird and wonderful things.

This encouragement has followed through into adulthood.

Because I had a Teacher is a great way to thank a special someone for the difference they make. 

Whether they’re an educator, a parent, a coach, or a mentor, this book is for them!

Because I had a Teacher is an incredibly cute book to let someone know that they have made a difference in your life

The front cover gives you a good idea of how cute the illustrations are.  Featuring two gentle bears, the older bear is handing a balloon with the world on it to the much younger bear.

The first page begins with, ‘’Because I had a teacher I love to learn.’’

The little bear is shown over the next few pages being guided by the big bear.  He learns that some things are harder than others, and that challenges can be fun.

‘’I know that I can always ask for help.’’ The bear is balancing on a rope, holding the older bears hand for support in this illustration.

The final page shows the little bear taking off in a hot air balloon, heading towards the stars. 

‘’Because I had you, I learned to believe in me.’’

Kobi Yamada is a New York Times best-selling author and creator of many inspiring gift books. This cute little book is particularly inspiring! Natalie Russell has illustrated this book just perfectly in a childish, yet professional way.  It’s hard not to fall in love with the bears at first sight!

Because I Had a Teacher is for anyone in your life who has inspired or encouraged you to be a better version of yourself.  Whether they’re an educator, parent, coach or mentor …. This book is for them.

Let them know they have made a difference in your life!
