Thank You, Teacher, Because...

by Daisy Barth

Hardcover $9.95

The charmingly-illustrated book by a pre-teen that tells what real kids appreciate about certain real teachers. A few of the many thank-you reasons are:

You answer stupid questions.
You appreciate Halloween.
You laugh at my jokes.
You never run out of pencils.
You tell good stories.
You don't play favorites.
I can believe that you were once young.

Teacher Window open the window.
...cobwebs don’t grow between my fingers
waiting for you to call on me.
Teacher Cobwebs
Teacher Spinach know there are things self-respecting
kids won’t eat.
