    The story and the illustrations are humorous and cute. I?d have adored this book as a kid and would have reread it over & over, chortling all the while. It took me a few pages to ?solve the mystery? because I am slow, but whether it?s figured out immediately, as I did, or n...

    My seven year old grandson doesn't like reading very much, but he loved this book when I brought it home from the library and devoured the others in the series, too. He's not observant, so I had to point out the clothes in Miss Nelson's closet at the end of the book and ask him what he...

    Miss Nelson is a perfect example of a picture book with a theme that young students can relate to. I love the fact that many readers can shamefully relate to joining with our classmates to torture an overly nice, young teacher. Students who read this book are able to reflect on their b...

    I still have my copy of this book from kindergarten, and its story is timeless. These days it seems like kids never respect anyone; they're rude, nasty and cruel a lot of the time to their parents and teachers, but this book serves as a reminder to treat others the way you'd like to be...

    I read this book as a child. I can remember that a substitute teacher was the first to introduce this book to me. I remembered because I thought it was funny that Mrs. Swamp in the book was a sub and the teacher reading it was too. I think this book is a great way to teach students how...
