Would you consider the audio edition of All Day to be better than the print version?
Absolutely, because it adds the AUTHORity of Lisa Jessie Peterson's voice.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
Her amazing imagination in service of her charges.
What about Liza Jessie Peterson’s performance did you like?
Her own enjoyment of it. This is not a report so much as it is a living prophecy. She's not the kind of prophet who foretells the future, but the more important kind, one who cogently articulates 'jedgment, jedgment'
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Dozens of such moments! But since you want 'a' singular one: when she arrives for a work day and finds everyone quiet and knows something ominous has caused it. Or when she rails about the blind authoritarianism of a new principal
Any additional comments?
•All Day• intimately connects us to the hearts and souls of talented children whom we have thrown away through our criminal injustice system.
Peterson did not just investigate. She did time herself —16 years in fact — as a loving teacher of those whom society considers the least among us. Her boundless imagination and courage inspire me. Her sass and candor heal.
I love this book, especially her reading of it on Audible.com.

INSPIRATIONAL, EMPOWERING, PASSIONATELY
WRITTEN. The author narrative is real, dramatic.
Made me feel like I was in the classroom and could envision everything.. I personally believe that this book should be read by every teacher,
especially in the inner City schools, grades 6th through 12th.
If there were more teachers with the fire and passion, that this author shared with her kids, there would be less children going to jail.
She help these kids understand that they should be proud of their heritage, know that they are intelligent, and can do anything, if they put their best efforts into it. I loved this book and recommend reading it.
I'm going to start the book again, right after I finish with this.
