Bravo! Definitely still enjoyable all these years later. I, personally, can't stand certain aspects of the illustrations, but that doesn't really detract from the worthiness or entertainment value of the book. ( )

This book is about these students in room 207 who always take advantage of the teacher, until they have an awful sub and end up really missing there teacher.

This is a good book to use in kindergarten or first grade as a read aloud to teach students about comparing and contrasting. You could have students compare and contrast Miss Nelson with Miss Swamp. They could also compare and contrast the students in the book with the way students in your classroom act. In both of these activities, you could also teach them how to use a venn diagram which could be used across multiple subjects. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395401461, Paperback)

The kids in Room 207 were misbehaving again. Spitballs stuck to the ceiling.  Paper planes whizzing through the air. They were the worst-behaved class in the whole school.
So begins this quirky classic, first published in 1977 and still relevant today as a lighthearted reminder to show our appreciation to those we value. The students don’t proffer a shred of respect for their good-natured teacher Miss Nelson, but when the witchy substitute Miss Viola Swamp appears on the scene, they start to regret their own wicked ways. James Marshall’s scritchy, cartoonish full-color ink and wash illustrations are hilarious. A back-to-school perennial!
