When I Grow Up I Want to Be a Sturgeon: And Other Wrong Things Kids Write by Gini Graham Scott Ph.D.

WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO BE A STURGEON features the wrong things that kids write that are sometimes hilarious.

Take this compliment to a teacher:

"Dear Ms. Williams, youo ar da best teecher i evere head."

Or consider this restatement of the popular sayingt:

"Don't bite the hand that ... looks dirty."

Learning "write from wrong" can be very confusing for kids. Often the results are laugh-aloud funny, unintentionally clever, or accidentally wise. This charming book of blunders is comprised of submissions by parents and teachers of their "favorites" and expresses the timeless truth that the most strange and wonderful things often come from the minds of children.

So get prepared to laugh and have fun as you read about all the wrong things that kids write and think is right!
