Summary in a Sentence:

Bobby thinks his teacher, Ms. Kirby, is horrible, but when he sees her outside of school and they spend a day in the park together, he discovers she might not be so bad after all.

Why You'll Love It:
  • Brown uses a cartoon-type format with panels and speech bubbles, varying the pace with full-page art, in a story that students and teachers will enjoy equally
  • At the heart of the awkward-pause-filled humor are Bobby and Ms. Kirby’s marvelous facial expressions.
  • Brown makes it clear that teachers are people too-even the "mean" ones.

Who should read it:

Great for grades K-2...and here's the activity kit.
