 …So you might want to read some books about school.  I have some that are fun. 


Dan Gutman's My Weird School series starts with Miss Daisy is Crazy and goes on from there with other rhyming titles, like Miss Laney is Zany!. This is a fun series for kids in grades 2 and 3.  You’ll laugh when you find the students having all sorts of adventures in school. 


For Fancy Nancy fans, there is a new chapter book series.  The first one is called Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth.   A prized possession that belongs to Nancy disappears and she has to solve the mystery. 



There are also readers and picture books about Amelia Bedelia, who definitely needs to learn more at school!   Compare your first day to Amelia Bedelia’s First Day of School! I think you’ll find that yours was pretty normal!


For older readers, there are all sorts of books by Andrew Clements. We the Children is the first book in  The Benjamin Pratt and the Keepers of the School series. It is a suspenseful story where Ben has to save his school from being destroyed.


In About Average, Jordan finds out that she has some special skills when a tornado strikes her school. 


Girls especially will enjoy the ‘Alice’ books by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.  The Agony of Alice is the first one in this series and Alice is very disappointed when she ends up with a homely teacher named Mrs. Plotkin.

Do you have a favorite?  Please let me know!
