Thank You, Teacher, Because...by Daisy Barth
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.
|...you open the window.|
|...cobwebs don’t grow between my fingers
waiting for you to call on me.
|...you know there are things self-respecting |
kids won’t eat.
