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 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.
