About Because of Mr. Terupt (Random House Kids)

It's the start of fifth grade for seven kids with unique stories at Snow Hill School. Only Mr. Terupt, their new and energetic teacher, seems to know how to deal with them all. Told from these students' perspectives, each with a different view of what makes their teacher so special, Because of Mr. Terupt is a sensitive exploration of classroom dynamics and the incredible impact that a teacher can have on his pupils.

Mr. Terupt is especially wise about how much students with and without disabilities can learn from getting to know each other.
