Miss Nelson is Missing is a story about a teacher going in to disguise to get her students to start behaving and treating the teacher with respect. Miss Nelson was a sweet teacher who was tired of her students running all over her. She creates a magnificent plan to dress as "Miss Swamp," a strict teacher that would not put up with any misbehaving children. The children in room 207 begin to realize that they miss Miss Nelson because of how much harder they had it when Miss Swamp was their teacher. Little do the students know, MIss Nelson has been there all along, just undercover.
This story has a great message, especially when a teacher is having a hard time of controlling their students in the classroom. This lesson can correspond with teaching students that being respectful to their teacher is very important and they probably wouldn't like it if "MIss Swamp" was their substitute The cartoon illustrations are significant in showing the hilarity of this story. The illustrations also show the creativeness in this story. This book would be a good read-aloud to students of all ages, and would hopefully spark good behavior.
