Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The fabulous canine teacher contracts the flu, but while she stays home to recover, the students in her kindergarten help the substitute find his way around the classroom, A to Z. Ages 3-up. (Feb.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Miss Bindergarten, the Kindergarten teacher, finds herself a bit under the weather and must stay home from school on Monday. This throws the class into a bit of a tizzy, as they worry about what they will do without their trusted teacher to guide them through the day. They soon find out that all has been taken care of when a rusty, but nice, substitute named Mr. Tusky arrives and asks the class for their help while Miss Bindergarten is away. The class rises to the occasion and the children do all of their usual activities without a fuss. They even find time to make get well cards for Miss Bindergarten and a few of their classmates who have caught the bug and stayed home as well. This is a sweet story that shows children that teachers are human, too, and that even when a teacher can't be there to teach class, a lot can be learned from a substitute. Overall, it is a fun read. 2000, Dutton Children's Books, $16.99. Ages 4 to 6. Reviewer: Emily Cook
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-In this third adventure, Miss Bindergarten catches the flu and misses school. The story starts on Sunday when she realizes she isn't well and chronicles the happenings in her class throughout the week under the direction of the worthy substitute Mr. Tusky, who describes himself as "-just a wee bit rusty." Each day another student becomes ill and, like Miss Bindergarten, has to stay home. However, school carries on and by Friday, teacher and kindergartners are well enough to return to school. Poor Mr. Tusky spends his weekend in bed with the flu. As in the earlier titles, the text rhymes and the students' names each start with a different letter of the alphabet. Here, as an added bonus, Slate introduces the days of the week. The brightly colored illustrations are attractive and fun and youngsters will relish their many details. The pictures of the housebound students are especially charming. This book will alleviate the concerns of children who worry what will happen if their teacher is absent or sick. This book should find a spot on every library shelf.-Sheilah Kosco, Rapides Parish Library, Alexandria, LA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
