What kids say about this book:
I wish I had a teacher like Ms. Sullivan.
I went to summer school once and it wasn't too bad.
I have a friend just like Shannon, and she likes purple too!
My friends are in a book club and they won the library book bash last
What the author has to say to you:
Just to let you know, I personally spent four years in second grade. In middle
and high school, I spent a lot of time in the guidance office. I was even in the
principal's office for a while. The next thing I knew, I was in college and then
I found myself at a university. I was there so long, learned so many words,
read so many books, and took so many classes, they made me a professor.
And, I'm still in school, even in the summer!
