While Kay's audiobook on discussing race focuses on skills for teachers, its theme is important for everyone, and David Sadzin's narration engages listeners beyond the target audience. The title comes from Frederick Douglass's call to action, placed in the context of classroom learning. Students are too often given "light"--the "February soup" of Black History Month's disconnected facts. Sadzin makes the case for "fire"--thoughtful learning environments that involve real student engagement. Kay critiques the "magic teacher" trope in popular culture, the belief that all teachers are young, iconoclastic, and naturally skilled, asserting that true learning requires planning and attention to detail. Sadzin's delivery is consistently focused, creating a rich learning environment that makes this listening experience vital. S.P.C.
