Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—This academic slice of life is a serviceable entry in Hubbell's community-helper series. An unidentified child describes a typical week in school: "We learn our numbers, one, two, three,/and our letters, A, B, C./We practice how to read and spell./Teacher joins our show-and-tell." Whether on the playground, engaging in community gardening, or working on computers, the kids seem to be having positive experiences. Clear and colorful cartoon illustrations show the peppy white teacher interacting with her diverse students in this oddly undersized class of four. Although the story lacks the spark of Joseph Slate's "Miss Bindergarten" books (Dutton), teachers will be pleased by this tribute, and youngsters starting school may find its sunny atmosphere comforting.—Heidi Estrin, Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FL END

This text is very opinionated with inappropriate slants to progressive ideas. Children need to be educated not programmed and persuaded to adopt specific political/social values; an open and diverse education will allow a child to mature into a young adult having the ability to make their own political/social decisions.

This is a great rhyming story that tells all of the things kids do at school each day and the story itself would be appropriate to any child beginning school, whatever age.

However, linguistically, it is aimed at first grade and above.

If you have a child getting ready for school, I suggest you not only read the story but also sit down and talk to your child about their teacher. In fact, if you know ahead your child's teacher's name, use it when reading the story to help make it more personal.

During my granddaughter's pre-reading time, we enjoyed rhyming books because after going through it once, she would know the rhyming word at the end of the second sentence. It is still fun to read to her, and she still loves to rhyme.

Very nice story ...

While both of my kids already are in school and know the drill, they both enjoyed reading Teacher! The book pretty much runs through a typical week in a classroom with activities such as singing, show and tell, learning ABCs, and so on. The writing is in rhyming format, so it's easy for kids to get engaged and the story is simple enough for young reader to follow. My two kids (both in preschool, one moving up to Kindergarten this year) really enjoyed the more subtle things in the book, particularly the "Today is Monday, Tuesday, etc" pictures in the background, the "Sunny, Rainy, Cloudy, Windy" poster she hung up in one of the pictures, the full ABC and 1-10 on the chalkboard, and the fact that the teacher actually changes clothes from day to day and doesn't wear the same outfit for the full week. There are a lot of little learning opportunities like this peppered throughout the book.

The illustrations, while simple, are clear and the kids enjoyed them. Our kids really enjoyed seeing what teachers do and looked forward to what's to come in kindergarten. This book was so good, we're thinking of buying a copy for our teachers at the end of the year to share in their classroom! Highly recommended!

On Monday all the children are running off to school. They have smiles on their faces and backpacks on their back and are getting ready to race up the stairs of the school where their teacher stands waving to them. Henry, Sally, Ellen and José have found their places at their tables after they have tucked their belongings into their cubbies. The teacher sets out paper, paints, glue and crayons and shows them all how to draw an amazing butterfly. Then she "shows us how to print our names, sets out puzzles, blocks, and games." On Tuesday it is time to learn about numbers, letters, a bit of addition and how to spell the word "cat."

There is a special guest who will be coming and every student has to be on his or her best behavior. "We practice how to read and spell. Teacher joins our show-and-tell." Of course playing outside is one of everyone's favorite activities of the day. Everyone loves to slide and run. Then it's back inside to work. "Computer work is fun, fun, fun! Teacher shows us how it's done." The days pass quickly and even though Friday and the "special guest" are arriving soon and everyone still is wide-eyed and smiling, especially the teacher!

This is a perfect little story in rhyme that doesn't miss a beat. It is the type of book that is perfect for the beginning reader as the words are easy to decipher, the story is fun and one that the young student can relate to. The artwork is simple like a modern day "Dick and Jane" and is quite appealing. I enjoyed walking through memory lane spending a week in the classroom with the children. This would be a perfect story to read during circle or storytime!

This book is WONDERFUL on multiple levels. The target audience (little ones soon approaching kindergarten) will no doubt enjoy it as a reassuring guide to their first day of school. It does a great job at both painting school as fun and teachers as kind-hearted mentors similar to a parent. Which they are.

For adults, this book is a sweet reminder of all the wonderful teachers we've had in the past and how important they have been in our lives. For actual teachers who read it, they very well may be crying by the end.

The plot is simple enough. Told from the point of view of the children, each page describes what fun/learning activity happens during school and how the teacher shows them how to do new things.

OVERALL: Parents of 4-5 year-olds should really put this on your Must-Read-to-Kids list. The illustrations are perfect and the wonderful underlining message of School is Fun, Learning is Awesome is great. It's also a nice ode to teachers and shows how important they are. That's another message that everyone should learn, not just children.

When I received this book, I quickly read it and didn't think it was anything special. I decided, however, to wait until today when it could be "kid tested" to review it. My 4 year old granddaughter loved this book and asked me to read it over and over. We read it a total of five times and she seemed fascinated by it every time. Later in the day more grandkids stopped over, and they all loved it too. Their ages were 2 to 5. I recommend it for toddlers and young preschoolers.

Throughout the book there is a sign on the bulletin board every day that tell what day of the week it is, and a sign that states "Special Guest Coming Soon". Every time we read it we talked about the signs. We also talked about all the pictures in great detail, such as the colors of all the markers. The rhyming is great in this book, and I think I could just about read it with my eyes closed.

One lesson learned from reading this book is never ask adults what they think of kids' books, go straight to the young experts.
