Teacher Tom's Second Book

Picking up where Teacher Tom’s First Book left off, Teacher Tom’s Second Book is an insightful, sometimes breathtakingly eye-opening look into the relationship between young children, learning, and the adults and institutions in their lives.


Teacher Tom’s ability to find great truth in small moments, coupled with his passionate defense of the rights of children and his critique of common practice, comes together to reveal a loving, child-centered world, one in which children are free to learn and grow, unencumbered by the dogma and nonsense of our culture’s ever narrowing view of childhood.


Teacher Tom's First Book

Teacher Tom’s First Book is by turns a hilarious, thought-provoking, and moving exploration of the life and times of this world-renowned teacher and his little preschool in Seattle, Washington.


Conceived as a “best of” compilation from the award-winning Teacher Tom's Blog, this book encapsulates, in stories from the classroom, what makes his democratic play-based curriculum such a powerful way for young children to learn life’s most important lessons.
