knitwit2's review
An engineer turned third grade teacher shares his daily life in the classroom through email correspondence with a former colleague. Working in an inner city school in Dallas was ripe with anecdotes. Very funny for anyone who has spent time in the classroom. Also great word play! ( )

Overall I thought this book was really funny. This book had me breaking out in random fits of laughter. At times I was a bit shocked at how John Pearson described some of the kids in his class, but most of the time it just seemed light-hearted. I would recommend this to someone looking for a relatively quick funny read. ( )

Might write a full review one day, but this book is hilarious. I laughed out loud SO many times during it. Every morning I'd have a new little story that was told in it to tell someone. If you or anyone you know is going to be/is a teacher, you should definitely get this book for yourself or them. If someone needs a good laugh, give this book to them. ( )

Entertaining and interesting, and at 99 cents a great value. On the downside, it started to feel repetitive, and ultimately never really made any strong impression on me in terms of theme or message. So enjoyable, but not really memorable. ( )

This is a fun, quick read. I enjoyed the fact that this new teacher had left corporate American, but referred back to it often. The similarities mentioned in corporate life to dealing with 8 year olds...

Funny and fun stuff. The short episodes make for great reading while on a plane or in a waiting room where interruptions are expected. ( )

Having been a mother of three, a room parent, a Sunday School teacher and a Girl Scout leader, I thought I had heard it all and seen it all when it came to the antics of small children. That thought couldn't have been farther from the truth. The comical tales described in the pages of this book had me literally laughing out loud. John keeps the whole thing light-hearted and fun, and his quick wit and roll-with-the-punches attitude only add to the reader's amusement. Teachers and parents, both, would enjoy Learn Me Good, all the while nodding their heads in agreement and understanding. ( )
