Raspberries and Children : A Celebration of Teaching. Teaching is one of the most generative, selfless and inscrutable of human encounters, requiring that we leave ourselves behind and that we bring ourselves along, that we deny ourselves and use ourselves, that we surmount our personal histories and rely on them to understand personal histories in the making. The raising of raspberries and the teaching of children became, for me, companion activities.

Frank Wallace loves children. Really loves them, not for what he can mold them into but for who they actually are. He loves them for their strengths and their weaknesses, for their silliness and their seriousness, for their commonalities and their individual quirks. As I read this book, I was delighted to hear the distinctive voice of Frank Wallace alive again in my head after so many years. But one need not, I think, have been in his classroom to delight in and profit from this wise and humane book. I read it and liked, very much so.

With the children no longer getting an education, the book tells us about how they fill their days occupying themselves and keeping themselves amused. The story tells us what can happen when things happen beyond your control

With the children no longer getting an education, the book tells us about how they fill their days occupying themselves and keeping themselves amused. With their new home in Yorkshire being near a railway station, a lot of their spare time is spent watching the passing trains and getting to know the station master. They encounter many adventures, including one which meant they had to stop the train after a landslide. The story tells us what can happen when things happen beyond your control. But, a family can be held together through love and perseverance.

A celebration of the world and humankind told through simple rhyming text and beautiful illustrations.

It seems that many publishers have been doing away with the silly practice of limiting age ranges so I have as well. A celebration of the world and humankind told through simple rhyming text and beautiful illustrations. There is so much about this book that catches a child’s imagination and the many ways it can be used to enrich their understanding of the world around them.

Teaching is one of the most generative, selfless and inscrutable of human encounters, requiring that we leave ourselves behind and that we bring ourselves along, that we deny ourselves and use ourselves, that we surmount our personal histories and rely on them to understand personal histories in the making.

The raising of raspberries and the teaching of children became, for me, companion activities. The one informed my understanding of the other. The virtues of a gardener -- patience, realism, regularity of effort, careful and long-term planning, are also the virtues also of a teacher. A child wants tending as much as a garden. The most beautiful strains of character or flower are often the most fragile and require the most careful cultivation. Neglect and a want of love are the greatest enemies of gardens and children.

No more than flowers do habits of the mind and heart spring full-grown. What is required of a gardener or a teacher is an active and tireless labor that appreciates things as they are and realistically imagines what they might become.

My high school career was bookended by English Literature courses taught by Frank Wallace. My classmates and I were aware of our great good fortune in this, and we responded with enthusiasm to his evident excellence as a teacher. He had an uncommon combination of qualities: he was brilliant and charismatic, and also kind and patient. A Frank Wallace class was exhilarating and challenging, and also congenial and good-humored.

This book gently reveals in a diaristic style the wellsprings of this good teacher, and in so doing gives insight into the qualities of all good teaching.

Love is at the center of it. Frank Wallace loves children. Really loves them, not for what he can mold them into but for who they actually are. He loves them for their strengths and their weaknesses, for their silliness and their seriousness, for their commonalities and their individual quirks.

Mr. Wallace sees schooling as the social, communal pursuit of teaching and learning, the main point of which is not the transmission of facts and skills but rather the cultivation of “habits of the mind and heart.” A good teacher models those habits and so must value the life of the mind and enjoy and practice learning. “Children are disinclined to take learning seriously in the presence of those who have stopped.”

The good teacher does not cover the material with Q & A sessions but rather stimulates actual thinking. This is accomplished, Mr. Wallace says, when “a real question is asked to which the answer is not already known.” Workbooks and lectures by “humbugs” miss the point. “When the question at hand is one to which thirty young minds may respond with thirty plausible answers, then magic is at work.”

The practice of a good teacher is characterized by creativity and invention, improvisation, reacting in the moment. Such teachers aren’t produced by “training” (although our systems for admitting teachers to the profession can promote or squelch their emergence) and the work of their classes cannot be specified in advance by curriculum committees (although these committees can allow them to flourish or undermine them).

As I read this book, I was delighted to hear the distinctive voice of Frank Wallace alive again in my head after so many years. But one need not, I think, have been in his classroom to delight in and profit from this wise and humane book.

Frank Wallace tells stories. Through his inquiring mind, open heart, keen ear and exquisite writing, Wallace shares watershed moments in the lives of boys and girls, mothers and fathers, teachers and school leaders. The action begins in the crucible of schools--day schools and boarding, public and private, from all over the United States, as well as in Europe, Central America and beyond--and continues in homes, play places, jobs, and everywhere children's lives get enriched. Like the late, great Studs Terkel, who recorded the oral histories of ordinary Americans through war, depression and hard work, with their dreams and dignity intact, Wallace weaves a lifetime of stories into a magic carpet that thrills, inspires, and touches soul. What a ride.

Ostensibly for teachers, this book is a treasure of short essays that resonate with anyone who cares about humanity, about children, about advancing our way of thinking. Metaphor is the device; pragmatism is the directive. It's a collection of beautiful, inspiring moments from a creative mind that seeds our imaginations.

In a time when "teaching-to-the-test" seems to have overtaken schools everywhere, this book is a healthy reminder of an earlier and truer model of education. Raspberries and Children, reflecting what the author calls the "companion activities" of his experiences in gardens and in schools, is truly a "celebration of teaching."

Illustrating his view with personal anecdotes, Wallace not only stirs up validating memories for veteran teachers, but illuminates the nature of the enterprise for those at the beginning of their careers.

Not in any sense an argument, and certainly not a program or prescription to be followed, the book both shows us how teaching is like gardening and teaching in action.

Irvin Yalom, in his book, Staring at the Sun, discusses the "rippling effect" that people can have on others: "concentric circles of influence that may affect others for years, even generations....much as ripples on a pond go on and on." The work of good teachers, like that of good gardeners, certainly has this rippling effect.

If this book were read by every teacher, and by everyone who trains teachers, one could only marvel at the transformation of our schools that would follow.

I read it and liked, very much so. I recommend this book not only to teachers and parents,
but to anyone who happens to want to learn how to listen to children. I also recommend
that you read this book aloud so you can have the feeling of the quality of story teller
with which the author is higly gifted.

Written by a master teacher & head of school, Wallace's book tracks the pure joy of introducing young minds to new ideas while detailing some of the learning events of an experimental school using farm chores as a supplement to the curriculum-
