Foreword by Kristen Lee
“Carol Radford is a teacher's teacher—one who cares for the caregivers. Full of real-life stories, practical tools, evocative art that adds a fourth dimension to the text, and links to podcasts that bring the text to life, the book does exactly what its title suggests: shines a light of affirmation and guidance on a noble profession.”Parker J.
