Overview

Ms. Plum is the magical teacher every schoolkid wishes for!

Everybody wants to be in Ms. Plum’s class. It’s not just that she teaches the usual things in unusual ways. There’s something more, something about Ms. Plum herself—and her mysterious supply closet. Whenever she asks her students to get her an eraser or a pencil or some paper clips, they come back with something . . . unusual. Who’d have thought a pinky-sized alligator, a big-mouth parrot, or a tiny wolf could teach kids a thing or two about life?

Each year, Ms. Plum is certain she’s had her best class ever. And it looks like this year . . . she’s right!

Relatable behavioral and personality issues are poked gently with empathy and humor in this fun, warmhearted chapter book.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Magic and common sense mix to create a wonderful year for Ms Plum, who could be Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's granddaughter, and her third graders. Clever and understated Ms Plum sends one student per chapter into her magical supply closet, which smells of "chalk and chocolate and something lovely no one could ever quite name," and that student comes out with a miniature version of an animal that behaves in a way that adds to the students' understanding. For instance, Jovi, a refugee from an unnamed African country, retrieves a fierce falcon the children come to understand needs freedom. With lightness and humor, complemented by Portnoy's occasional black-and-white illustrations, Becker highlights the personalities of Everyclass: the whiner, the optimist, the showoff, the thief, the shy one. Readers will surely see themselves in the chapters and eagerly read on to see what will happen as the year unfolds. Ms Plum has some real teaching magic up her sleeve, and teachers who read aloud to their classes will want to begin or end their years with this one. (Fantasy. 7-11)

    Really fun

    Indeed.it's true that everyone wants to be in Ms. Plum's class. I especially would have loved to have been in such a magical classroom as a child. This is most certainly a children's book, which is not usually a book that I review and recommend, but upon seeing the title, I knew it would be the kind of book that a lot of people would enjoy. I feel like it should be added to the list of great children's books that become classic over time, like Where the Wild Things Are and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

    Even for adults, it's an interesting allegory that can give some insight into who you were as a child and who you've become as an adult. Honestly, I kind of wish that there was a magical Ms. Plum right now that would show me some of my personal character flaws in order to help me figure out how to right them. I recommend this book to children, parents and teachers.
