by Elizabeth Levy & illustrated by Dave Henderson. Levy writes affectionately of the period when fourth-grader Jackie discovers that her energy and imagination are appreciated by a teacher and, as a result, comes to value herself-but this is only the beginning of the story. Previously considered a mildly difficult student (& & problems of & coordination''), Jackie basks in Ms. Sugarman's praise; thus, when her teacher is offered the principal's job, Jackie is the most vocal opponent of change, unwilling to part with her new ally.
