About the Author
After years as a kindergarten teacher, Matt Halpern now works as a K-5 Literacy Coach in New England. He loves school so much he decided to become a teacher and help kids love it as much as he does. Getting to sing, dance, and get hugs all day long makes him one of the few who actually wake up excited about going to work.

Mr. Halpern sees the potential in children and celebrates their unique qualities. His book resounds with the echo of children's laughter and joy and gives us a peek into the happy learning environment in his classroom. Bravo! Mr. Halpern. Your book is a small treasure trove of joy. Please keep writing.
My only complaint is that the book is very short and mostly focuses on individual students. I would have liked to hear more about working with a kindergarten class as a whole. As it is, I enjoyed reading about Halpern's students and philosophy very much.
