I cannot rate this book highly enough! Since reading it, I have really thought about my whole approach to the classroom. I found Louanne Johnson to be down-to-earth and extremely practical, as well as amusing and at times touching. I keep on re-reading it, and every time I find some new gem! I am hoping there will be a sequel!

Two Parts Textbook, One Part Love is a must have for all teachers' libraries. Teachers should take a part of this book with them to start their September school year. Her other book, School is Not a Four Letter Word, is a great book for parents of your students...recommend it at Back to School Night!

: If you watched 'Dangerous Minds' and scoffed at Michelle Pfeiffer subduing hundreds of unruly kids without a single eye-bag or chewed fingernail, or if you read LouAnne Johnson's other books and tried out some of her exercises in your own teaching, then this is the book you REALLY wanted, instead.
It's all tips and tricks and how-to-make-life-easier, and guess what? All of them WORK.
