An Arthur book?! I know what you must be thinking... why a children's book?

Well, one of my best friends and I went to the library and fangirled over the Arthur television show, filled with nostalgia - so we decided to read some of the books before closing. I picked up this one because I thought, whoah when did Ratburn move in!?

It was an extremely amusing tale of how Arthur learns that his teacher isn't all that bad, and is human like everyone else - I feel like teachers would enjoy this book be
Arthur assumed that Mr. Ratburn was mean because he was his teacher. However, when Mr. Ratburn stays the night at Arthur's house while his roof is being fixed, Arthur learns that Mr. Ratburn is just like everyone else. This is a good book to use to teach students about not judging others until you get to know them.

Mr. Ratburn is moving in with Arthur! How terrible! Living with your teacher!? Who knew teachers had lives outside of school. Could Mr. Ratburn actually be a normal animal. Maybe him moving in won't be so bad at all. Arthur is considerin gthese things while taking slack from his friends.
The storyline here is completely implausible (wouldn't Mr. Ratburn stay with a colleague or at a hotel before staying with a student's family?). But I can't help myself, I love Marc Brown's illustrations, and his storylines always strike a chord with kids.
This book is a good book to teach about peer pressure and judging others. Arthur gets teased for having his teacher stay at his house-by the end he realizes his teacher is a person who enjoys basic things like him.
A great book to teach students that teachers don't live at school. It could also be used to illustrate how hurtful it is when we tease our friends.

Teachers aren't so bad afterall, Arthur. Teaches kids that teachers aren't scary.

I felt sorry for Arthur in this story as he was teased about being the "teacher's pet."
Mommy says: Hmm. Mr. Ratburn isn't so bad after all. We love Arthur books.
Another Marc Brown author study book...again, a little boring.
what do you do when your teacher comes to live with you
