Thank You: (a book for teachers)

Thank You: (a book for teachers)
The perfect last-minute gift for your favorite teacher.

As artist and writer Sandy Gingras so aptly points out in the introduction to her book Thank You, a life lived well is perhaps the highest form of thanks a person can give to teachers as a way of repaying them for their attention and effort. A simple thank-you is also nice.

Thank You is Gingras's own delightful way of conveying this sentiment. This charming keepsake book features her soft, sweet watercolor artwork and thoughtful original text celebrating teachers and all they do for us.

Always striking the right tone of gratitude without being overly sentimental, Thank You is a wonderful way to show appreciation to teachers for their enduring gifts to us both great and small.

    This pretty little book is the perfect thank you for that teacher who really cared and did those extras that helped your child, and you (the parent). It captures many of the significant things teachers do that make a big difference, like giving you another chance, teaching you to keep trying and encouraging you to listen to the creativity inside you. This book is a real find, and would be terrific for a retirement gift as well….


    Bought it for two sweet teachers. It’s really cute but I will say it was soooo tiny I didn’t think it would be such a little cute book. But it’s a good gift…

    This is a great gift for a teacher in elementary school, probably more so for 4th or 5th grade. I got it for my son’s first grade teacher and decided to keep it for later. The words are touching and truly an inspiration for a good/great teacher. It probably would be good for teacher appreciation day as well….

    I was disappointed when these arrived, since they are VERY small. I’m sure that is my mistake, it probably told me the dimensions and I skipped right over it. At any rate, for the price (I paid $9.99 with Prime) I wouldn’t purchase again….

    I got this book for 2 of my children’s teachers (along with other stuff) for an end of year gift. I think that both teachers really liked them. One teacher specifically mentioned how cool the book was in her thank you note. The book is small (but small in a cute way, not in a cheap way). In fact, the cover is quite thick and the pages are substantial. The illustrations are sweet, and the little sayings and messages inside are really poignant. I think it really hits the spot for an elementary school teacher, probably not as applicable for a high school teacher. Also, neither of my kids’ teachers had seen it before – these days it is nice to be able to get them something and know they aren’t going to get 4 more from other kids. I will do this again next year for the kids teachers in 2nd and K. Would definitely recommend….

    this book is very small. I wasn’t expecting a big book but this is really really small. I was kind of dissapointed….

    Yes it is a very small book but the little messages inside are nice. Some of the messages apply to my grand daughter’s teacher -some not. If I would have saw this in the store like Hallmark I would have picked it up but not have purchased it. I hate shipping items back and forth so we will keep it and give to her teacher and I am certain because it is showing her that we think very highly of her she will like it….

    Super cute book although much smaller than I expected. Ordered it for my son’s 3rd grade class to all sign and write their own thank you for… To their teacher who was retiring but when it arrived I quickly realized that there’s no way a class of 28 could all even sign their names. It’s my fault for not checking the deminsions but didn’t think I’d have to. No longer have the book to measure but it’s about the size of a sandwich. With that said the story is perfect for any teacher as a end of the school year gift. I just had my 2 children whom this teacher taught write heart felt notes in both the front and back cover….
