Overview

The New York Times bestselling author of Teach Like Your Hair’s on Fire shares his proven methods for creating compassionate children

During twenty-five years of teaching at Hobart Elementary School in inner city Los Angeles, Rafe Esquith has helped thousands of children maxi­mize their potential—and became the only teacher in history to receive the president’s National Medal of Arts. In Lighting Their Fires, Esquith translates the inspiring methods from Teach Like Your Hair’s on Fire for parents. Using lessons framed by a class trip to a Dodgers game, he moves inning by inning through concepts that explain how to teach children to be thoughtful and honorable people—as well as successful students—and to have fun in the process.
