Details: Product Description How to Get Your Teacher Ready… all year long, from the creators of the New York Times bestsellers How to Babysit a Grandpa, How to Babysit a Grandma, and How to Catch Santa.   This humorous new book in the beloved HOW TO . . . series takes readers through a fun and busy school year. Written in tongue-in-cheek instructional style, a class of adorable students gives tips and tricks for getting a teacher ready—for the first day of school, and all the events and milestones that will follow (picture day, holiday concert, the 100th day of school, field day!). And along the way, children will see that getting their teacher ready is really getting themselves ready. Filled with charming role-reversal humor, this is a playful and heartwarming celebration of teachers and students, and the perfect gift for back-to-school readiness or graduation.   Praise for the HOW TO . . . books:   “A new hit this year is How to Catch Santa. . . . The picture book offers lighthearted tips on how kids can steal a glimpse of Mr. Elusive, aka Santa.” — USA Today ( How to Catch Santa)   “Belongs on the shelf of every kid who loves a grandparent.” — The Salt Lake Tribune ( How to Babysit a Grandpa)   “The charm of its premise and the clear bond between the generations will have kids and grandparents giggling together.” —School Library Journal ( How to Babysit a Grandma) From School Library Journal PreS-Gr 2—The sweetness of this book will entice readers young and old. Reagan provides guides to basic school rules, celebrations like 100 Days and class plays, and even the bittersweet moment of moving up a grade. These are meant to put kids at ease with school situations and let them know they're not alone. As the most recent edition in the "How To…" series, this book plays to adult readers, amusing parents, while giving kids a light structure for their student experience, and reflecting gently but profoundly on the special role that teachers play in their students lives. Though the flow of the book is a bit unfamiliar—definitely a "how to" rather than a narrative—it is an effective method to build empathy and appreciation for the formative day-to-day work of educators. Wildish's illustrations are soft, expressive, full of hugs and smiles and silly faces, and add to the light and upbeat tone. Missteps like a thin-lined font choice and an oddly light hand on character faces distract from but don't derail the experience. VERDICT A tender read-together for an early elementary or pre-K audience, this is a surprisingly thoughtful read for parents and teachers to share and discuss with children.—Emilia Packard, Austin, TX Review Praise for the HOW TO . . . books:   “A new hit this year is How to Catch Santa. . . .
