Welcome to the blog tour page for the 10th Anniversary Edition of "Educating Esme" which will be released in September, 2009. Current edition info.
The blog tour will run throughout the month of September and consists of both book reviews and author stops.
Author Esme Codell is a nationally renowned advocate for literacy and literature-based instruction. She is dubbed “one of the nation’s most sought-after voices for empowering teachers” (People) and a “Superstar of Education” (Scholastic Instructor). Her diary, "Educating Esme", was first published in 1999. Over 200,000 copies later, the irreverent and ground-breaking book has been hailed as “the gold standard” of the first-person account (The New York Times) and declared a “pop culture phenomenon” (Publishers Weekly).
The 10-year anniversary edition includes a new Foreword by Katherine Paterson, author of "Bridge to Terabithia", a brand new guide filled with Codell’s invaluable advice and practical tips for teachers and a fantastic shopping list of must-haves for a teacher’s first classroom.
