Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A young boy fears the worst on his first day of school. He dreams that his teacher, Mrs. Green, is a monster of the worst sort. The kind of teacher who gives homework on the first day of school. The kind of teacher/monster that bites children in half to demonstrate fractions. And the kind of teacher who can singe a student with her fiery breath for asking a question. When the young boy wakes up and sees the real Mrs. Green, he is so delighted that he rushes to the front of the classroom to hug her. This amusing story comes to life with this video. Children may laugh at the absurdity of our young protagonist's nightmare, as his imaginings get more and more frightful. And they may all breathe a collective sigh of relief when he meets the attractive teacher who has supplanted the monstrous Mrs. Green of his nightmare. The producer of this enjoyable video includes a guide with suggestions for before and after viewing activities. The helpful activities include discussing the title of the program and eliciting guesses as to what the story is about before playing the video. After children have an opportunity to view the video, they may discuss why the boy had imagined his teacher might be such a monster and how his monster differed from the real teacher. Other activities suggested include putting on a class play, writing a text/video and using artwork to express feelings about the video. The running time of this production is 9 minutes. 2003 (orig.1989), Weston Woods Videos/Scholastic, Ages 5 to 8.

    I felt this book was very inappropriate for younger children. For children with healthy imaginations, the subject matter could be too much and very scary. I recommend that parents review this book first before purchasing it, so you can determine if your chid would be scared by it.

    great book

    when the book finally was delivered, which was promised in 4 days, it took 7 days! so it was a Christmas gift and was not given to recipient. very disappointing on ordering at my local store and then it didn't get delivered when they said it would. i have a membership so was free delivery, but took way too long.

    great book

    I liked this book because in the story the boy falls asleep and dreams that he has a teacher named Miss Green. What I didn't like about this book is when the teacher Miss Green scrapes her nails across the board. And would I recommend this book to anyone yes I would. Even if they read it already they might still want to read it again. This is why would want to recommend this book to anyone.

    The Teacher From the Black Lagoon is about a little boy and a dog. In school the little boy has a problem. The little boy was having a dream that the teacher was a dino! My favorite part was when the teacher shrunk Penny's head. I would recommend this book to people who like to read about animals. This book is funny. I give it 5 stars.

    How bad can a new teacher be?

    Easy enough for my first grader to read to me, and funny enough for me to read to my husband, 'The Teacher from the Black Lagoon' explores a young child's insecurities about adjusting to a new teacher, who turns out to be worse than he imagined...or is she really?
