Just in time for back-to-school, “Dear Teacher” is a collection of humorous letters from a child to his teacher explaining why he cannot go to class. Each subsequent letter describes Michael’s increasingly outlandish escapades. Illustrations.

My Comments: I read this book to my second graders the first week of school and we enjoyed it.  It would serve two purposes in my classroom – writing letters and beginning of school.  The book uses imagination in a fun way and kept my class engaged throughout.  The illustrations are kid-friendly and the cover looks like a large envelope which adds to the appeal.  We also discussed places around the world such as Egypt, Africa, and Asia.  This is a keeper!
