'It is a beautiful thing the way literature can fire the hearts
of teenagers (and the rest of us): the stories transport us into
the experiences of others, the way the author conveys them allows
us to step into the vision of someone else and understand it; and,
especially, the excitement a teacher shares for a book is a lesson
that lasts a lifetime and nourishes the student every day. It is
all this that David Sloan conveys about teaching literature to
teens. Open Life Lessons and discover the magic for your self. And,
then share some of it with a teenager!'
