    I bought this book for many teacher friends!

    I got such a kick out of reading this book. It is actually so true, making it soooo funny! One can tell that Dr. Layne has been in a classroom or two during the pre-holidays! I got several copies of this book to give to my teacher friends!

    I liked the story because im a teacher

    I purchased the book only because I made a connection with the story. I am a a teacher, and I thought it would be nice to share with my students the struggles of Christmat shopping for teachers. They really enjoyed it.

    As a teacher I can relate to the entire book. It is full of hilarious situations with a very touching ending.

    Captured the true 'teacher' season!

    The Teachers' Night Before Christmas is a book that truly captivated the pre-season life of all educators. I love the way the book illustrates all of the things that teachers do for their students! This is a book that any teacher would love and appreciate!
