    If you want to see exactly what rests at the center of someone s soul, don t bother reading a 200 page biography on them ask them what was the first book ever to make an impression on them that lasted into their adulthood For some it might be some garbage about a brat named Ramona and her ginger kid friends, and these people embrace a passion for whimsy and camaraderie Others have a deep rooted sense of self from cherishing the trails and tribulations of some chick named Margaret menstruati

    This is the only chapter book I ve read to my class this year that has caused them to demand chapters, beg for a quick chapter here and there throughout the day and I ve even had to re read several chapters to them There is just something about absurdity mixed with keen observations of school days reality that gets kids every time.

    My fourth grade homeroom teacher read this to our class, only she substituted names of the students and teachers in the book with the names of the students in our class I was Leslie how I remember that, I have no idea and the other teachers in our grade Hilarity ensued, I assure you A lot of my elementary school teachers liked reading to their homeroom classes during downtime, and I always loved it This book stands out as one of my all time favourite read to me books, probably because of

    January 20, Chapter 1I think Mrs.Gorf is a really mean teacher, because she turned her students into an apple, when they did nothing wrong.January 27 , Chapter 2Mrs Jewls is a kind teacher, she thinks that her students are terribly cute And she plans to give them a banana, because she thought that they look like a monkey.February 3, Chapter 3Joe is a boy who can t count properly.I think it s funny when he can only count backwards, but will still get the correct answer when Mr s Jewls ask him q
