Summary

Summary

This third picture book starring the beloved Miss Bindergarten takes a look at what happens when everyone's favorite kindergarten teacher gets sick. On Sunday the flu hits, and on Monday Miss Bindergarten stays home from kindergarten. But never fear, the substitute teacher Mr. Tusky is on the scene. Although on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, other students stay home sick, the class works together with the substitute to keep things running smoothly. Busy with show-and-tell, singing songs, and making get-well cards, they receive a joyous surprise on Friday, when Miss Bindergarten (and everyone else) is back!With vigorous text and brisk rhymes, this clever book also manages to teach the days of the week in a playful, appealing way. Ashley Wolff's bright and exuberant illustrations burst with kindergarten activity.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-In this third adventure, Miss Bindergarten catches the flu and misses school. The story starts on Sunday when she realizes she isn't well and chronicles the happenings in her class throughout the week under the direction of the worthy substitute Mr. Tusky, who describes himself as "-just a wee bit rusty." Each day another student becomes ill and, like Miss Bindergarten, has to stay home. However, school carries on and by Friday, teacher and kindergartners are well enough to return to school. Poor Mr. Tusky spends his weekend in bed with the flu. As in the earlier titles, the text rhymes and the students' names each start with a different letter of the alphabet. Here, as an added bonus, Slate introduces the days of the week. The brightly colored illustrations are attractive and fun and youngsters will relish their many details. The pictures of the housebound students are especially charming. This book will alleviate the concerns of children who worry what will happen if their teacher is absent or sick. This book should find a spot on every library shelf.-Sheilah Kosco, Rapides Parish Library, Alexandria, LA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
