Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Enormous book shortages plague nearly every emerging nation. The creative potential of teachers is being tapped in India, Thailand and Uganda, where they are writing, illustrating and even hand-producing books for their own class rooms. From them, children are also learning to make this most basic teaching tool. Narrated by Edward Kemp.
