“With patience and calm, persistence and stoicism, good handwriting and careful labeling, they would meet persecution, indignity, and hardship head-on.” (This is to become my teaching slogan!)

Fantastic quick read! Captivating with an ironic reality - this could be a history book in ten years. A must read for a pop culture nerd #readit

“I had been noticing that my little raccoon also carried patterns in his brain, as do the migrating birds and the honey-storing bees. I think I learned more about the orderly universe sitting in the garden picking beans than I ever did on a hard pew...”
