I gave this guided reading book a 5/5 because the story is very well done and the topics are those that students will most likely already have background knowledge on, but if not the teacher can provide this to the students. This book has great illustrations to support the text, that the students can also utilize when doing a picture walk before the guided reading and throughout the reading to help them figure out words they may not know. This book also utilizes word patterns as well that can help the reader. This book specifically is about how a substitute teacher can disrupt the classes daily routine, but how the class may benefit from doing something different. The problem in this story is that they go to every other extracurricular and miss art class. They then do the art in their class; this book can also symbolize the importance of doing art in class and also providing recognition to those who deserve it. The students will be able to connect to this if they have ever had a substitute where this did not necessarily go as planned. ( )

This book meant for emergent readers to be used by the child and a mentor together, explores having a substitute teacher--a very surprising substitute.
