"This is the finest book I have ever read on education and its transformations. Master teacher Launa Ellison brings current brain research to bear on her own profound, state-of-the-art teaching methods. Rarely has theory and practice been so brilliantly brought together. Every teacher, every parent, every citizen concerned about our children and their development should read this book."

"This book is chock full of good ideas for teachers by a master teacher! Ellison's knowledge of emotions and their importance is phenomenal. Especially good are the classroom scenes where she describes activities and students' reactions. The descriptions make the book sparkle and come alive."
