"Miss Nelson goes away for a week, and the kids in Room 207 fear that they'll have the dreaded substitute teacher, Viola Swamp. Instead, they get Principal Blandsworth, who bores them into taking drastic measures. A nutty sequel to Miss Nelson Is Missing." (From Amazon)
Yay, Miss. Nelson is back!!! A fun picture book.
Genre: Elementary book, Early Childhood, humor, respect
Review: This book is a sequal to "Miss Nelson is Missing." Miss Nelson has to go away for a week and the horrid Miss Swamp makes another appearance. I would use this in my classroom before I took a vacation away from school to remind students that they need to respect others even if they are only in their life for a short time. It's also a great reminder of how they should always behave and treat other people.
