Teachers are memory makers. We know that stories,paintings, plaster of paris handprints that children make at school will someday become family treasures….We understand that kids are like wet canvases. We help paint the backgrounds- Phillip Done
Close Encounters of the Third-Grade kind is by far one of the most enjoyable books I have read till date. Each time I pick up the book and get comfy on the couch, Hubby will walk in a few minutes later only to find me giggling my sides apart. To redeem myself from his thoughts of wifey’s ‘cuckoo-ness’ (If there ever were such a word!) I read out the passage that set me off in the first place and then we start the chuckles together. This book truly does that!!
I love books and find that I can entertain myself for hours on end with a single book. But ever since Bunny girl’s birth, my frequency of reading books on end has minimised drastically. I’ve found it hard to sit down with a good book and finish it. I love Close Encounters of the Third Grade Kind as its one of those light reading books. You can pick it up, read several passages, have a good laugh, put down the book, walk away and come back hours later and start from where you stopped without feeling you missed anything important. Its that easy to get back into the flow of the book.
Phillip Done has creatively woven his experiences with a class of Third Graders in a school year with threads of humor and thought. 20 years of teaching wisdom has been concised into 336 pages of great reading. This book is a must read for every teacher (you can learn more than just a thing or two!), for every parent (you always wanted to know what your third grader was upto…with this book you will know!) and for everyone else (We all have been third graders once…going through each page with take you down memory lane to relive the fun moments you had in school.)
The Hachette Book Group always publishes great books and this book rightfully deserves its place in Hachette’s treasury!
I definitely recommend this book as a must read.
Thanks to the Hachette Book Group, five readers will get to own their very copy of Close Encounters of the Third Grade Kind and what’s great is this book only releases in the month of September 2009, so you will literally be getting your copy ‘Hot off the Press’!
