This is a picture book about a teacher who is late for school. He has a rule in his classroom that one should NEVER be late.It tells, in predictable fashion, about the different modes of transportation he uses to try to make it to school on time. In the end, he is late and decides to change his rule to try to never be late.This was a good book with large colorful pictures. It was perfect to read aloud as the predictability created excitement about what was to follow.I would love to read this book aloud to children and have them tell out loud what came next. It could also be used to teach children about being on time.
What a darling picture book this is! I really loved this book! Mr. Bungles, the teacher, has one rule for his students ¿ never ever be late for school. He oversleeps one morning, and the reader will roar with laughter at the rhyming text, hilarious illustrations, and the modes of transportation that Mr. Bungles uses to get to school on time. Did he make it on time? You'll just have to read this adorable book to find out! This book will teach your child about different vehicles used for transportation you'll have fun helping your child spotting the clock in each illustration so they can see what time it is, and the cleverly written rhyming text will help your child guess the rhyming word before turning to the next page. This book gets a high five from me for fun, for learning, and for having the tables turned on a teacher for a change ¿ every kids' dream!
