This book is truly a fun read for all elementary teachers. How nice it is to know that there are others out there who understand the life of a teacher, its surprises, all of its stresses, and its celebrations. No two days are ever the same for a school teacher. Philip Done captures this in his easy to read novel that can be read in 5 minute sittings, however once you pick it up you won't want to put it down. You'll laugh and cry through the whole book and feel validated for everything you have done, experienced or thought as a teacher. If you're not a teacher, your eyes will be opened as to the real life of a teacher. My daughter (age 9) even loved me reading it out loud to her. Since we've all experienced 3rd grade, everyone will get a kick out of 32 Third Graders and One Class Bunny.

I read this book over a decade ago and I plan to reread it today. I have recommended it, lent it out, and given copies as gifts to teacher AND non-teacher friends. As a teacher, I could relate to almost all of it, and I actually laughed out loud while reading it. Over the years, snippets from this book have popped into my head almost daily. I just ordered his other book, Close Encounters of the Third Grade Kind - I wish I had thought to check sooner if he had written any other books! I can't wait to receive it.

Love this wonderful, loving tribute to the 3rd grader. He pegs it! I am an aide in a third grade class and this book is as charming as all 29 students I see and love each day!

Mr. Done writes what every teacher has ( or will) encounter during their career. He explains humorously the time, sacrifices, daily encounters and amount of money teachers give.....not to complain, but to teach the reader. Teachers will connect with it, parents can appreciate what characteristics make a great teacher and politicians will get insight that educating our future is NOT an 8-3/August-May job.

This book highlights the humorous aspects if teaching and teaches readers to see the comical side of any situation. Done's use of his humerous experiences are both witty and touching. Even though this book is lighthearted, it provides great life lessons and insight about what it is like to be a teacher. This book is easily relatable and renews one's faith and motivation in the teaching profession.

I gave this as a gift to two teacher friends. Both have told me how they laughed out loud, chuckled and cried as they read it. They thoroughly enjoyed it and have both recommended it to other friends. It is very insightful, but entertaining. It will make you appreciate the teaching profession!!

I teach third grade and this book was the comic relief that I needed. I laughed over and over again as I could relate to Phillip Done and his experiences. This is a book that I will read time and time again!

This book is the best voice for teachers I've ever heard. It's as if Mr. Done was writing my thoughts. The chapter on speeches and letters he would write to parents were verbatim for me. This book gives the best insight on how teachers feel and think during the year from beginning to end. I've read the book 3 times in one weekend and I've found something new each time. The introduction is touching. It describes to a "T" what a teacher is and more. It showed that teaching is more than just passing along knowledge. It is being the nurse, doctor, shrink, comedian etc. Now when people ask me why I like being a teacher I tell them to read this book. It gives just and brief glimpse at what my job means to me and why I do it. Thank you Mr. Done for finally putting into words what I have been feeling for the past 8 years. Oh, by the way, 6 of those 8 years was as a 3rd grade teacher.
