Overview

Teachers are simply the best. They're the special breed of people who strive to infuse us with an appreciation for the miraculous world in which we live and a sincere passion for learning. What better way to sing their praises than by declaring more than a thousand great things about them? That's what the successful author trio of Birnbach, Hodgman, and Marx does in this fourth book of their highly successful 1,003 Great Things series. This wonderfully humorous book features entries such as:

o They are as happy about Friday as you are.

o They tend to have highly legible handwriting.

o Who else knows how important it is to be line leader?

o They are excellent spellers.

o Teachers know about Roman numerals.

o They are more afraid of the principal than you are.

o They're not in it for the money.
