You’ve likely seen the graduation idea floating online on Pinterest or social media about having teachers sign an iconic book like Oh The Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss for your child at each grade level so they can cherish the special notes one day. We are staring that tradition this year, but were also inspired to gift TEACHERS a book gift as well.

Having your child inscribe a special message inside a meaningful book for teachers is one that will last long past flowers, plants or one-time gift cards.

For our teacher gifts this year, we are presenting them with the book Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. I read this book a few months ago and the message of unearthing your hidden talents (we all have them, we just may not know what they are yet) resonates with anyone young or old.

What better way way to thank teachers – those who excel each day at encouraging children to find their “hidden treasures” – than with a book about unearthing each person’s magic talents?

The quote I love most from the book is this one where Gilbert writes”

“So this, I believe, is the central question upon which all creative living hinges: Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?”

Of course you can gift your teachers other books as well. Here are some other recommended books for teachers.

The kids are excited to wrap up their personally inscribed book gifts and hand them to their teachers this week!
