I think I'm done with this series for the boys. they are too old for it. This was cute and sappy. ( )

This book is great because it shows that teachers are real people and have a life outside of school which children tend to believe isn’t true. The story also shows a boy who is responsible but unfortunately is in a position where his teacher’s old dog dies while in his care. Shows kids how he emotionally deals with the death of a pet.

This book would be great for teaching setting. Its also a very good book to get the older kids like 3rd and 4th grade interested in reading.
