Five Stars……”I keep Sylvia Duckworth’s sketchnotes around me as constant reminders of not only what I am supposed to do as a teacher but who I'm supposed to be. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a good sketchnote, like those in this book, are worth ten thousand. This book is a must buy for every teacher or person who wants to be inspired.”
