This book was about a young girl who hated going to school because she claims there were always bad things happening. She never wanted to go to school because she did not like anything about it. When she no longer had to go to school, she cried because she said that she would miss being there everyday.
I would read this book to a classroom because I am sure that is how all children feel when they are in school, and for most students, they are also sad when it is time to leave and never go back. ( )

I enjoyed reading this book. The seemed it would easy to read and understand for a 1-3 grader. The book tells a story of a young girl that hates school and she explains why, but at the end of the school year she admits that she will miss it. Illustration was very detailed. ( )

This book is very clever. The book is about a little girl talking about all the things she hates about school, but then realizes that she miss it when it's over. The author did a good job interpreting from a little girl's perspective. The little girl overly exaggerates her story of course, like most kids do. ( )

Honor is a little girl with a huge imagination. She creates stories about why she doesn't want to be in school; her teacher is a toad, they chop off heads of students who talk in class, her friends are crooks and villains. Yet... she is upset on the last day, because she will miss it. A book to read to kids, perhaps, on the first day of school, and then on the last day. ( )

The story was cute. An over exaggeration is something you will defiantly hear from a child that doesn't want to go to school. I would recommend this book to parents to read to their children during the end of the year when they are just like they don't want to go anymore. ( )

This story describes the life of typical young children in school. Honor is set up on hating school, but comes to love it. A child's imagination and excuses used can be very, very wild. This story like most others use rhyming in their stanzas. Rhyming makes stories more enjoyable and intriguing for kids. ( )

I suspected while reading this story that it would come to a full circle. Honor claims to hate school but really loves it. The rhymes fit the story line and do not seem forced to make the story. The imaginative, over the top lyrics seems to allow us to peak into a child's mind. I know many of us have known a person similar to Honor. This is a great book for children complaining about going to school. ( )

Honor Brown describes how horrific going to school really is. She dramatizes her teacher as a warty toad, the principal chopping heads off, and her friends being villains and crooks. In the end, she realized that school wasn't as bad as she thought and she was actually going to really miss it. ( )

This book is about a little girl who has a big imagination about how horrible school is. The whole story gives reasons why she hates school, except for at the end. At the end she is supposed to move on from the school, but she cries and sobs that she will really miss it. I think this is a great story to remind students that school really is not that bad. ( )

Honor Brown tells us of the horrors of school and that she hates it. From getting your head cut off for talking to having swim in a shark infested wading pool. However when it is time to leave the school she gets upset and doesn't want to leave. This is a story full of imagination and the ways a child will explain why she doesn't want to do something. This book would be great to share with a first or second grade class just for fun at reading time. ( )

The main character Honor Brown told horrific stories about how horrible school and her teachers were and how they did mean things to her. It is a good story to read to students during the first weeks of school so they see at the end how she really loves school. It is important to teach students at a young age about "bad things" and fantasy because it is very prevalent in stories today. ( )

"I hate school" Honor Brown says, which is understandable when she tells the things she goes through there. She is tied up, fed coal, and even stuck in slime; who would want to go to school with all of this. In the end she we find her in the corner crying saying that she doesn't want to leave. This just shows that no matter how much you hate something your feelings can still change. ( )
