My Teacher is a Monster!

August 28, 2014

by Peter Brown

Bobby’s teacher is a monster. Or is she? Bobby likes to go to the park to take his mind off his monster teacher, but one day… she is there! Bobby and his teacher end up spending some time together in the park, quacking with ducks and flying paper airplanes. Watch as his teacher slowly transforms from a monster into a real person. When Bobby gets back to school, he views his teacher a little differently… but that’s not to say she doesn’t still get a little monstrous at times.

This is a fun book that can show kids how people can act differently in different situations. Just because a teacher acts a certain way during class doesn’t mean she can’t have fun outside of the classroom! And as always, Peter Brown’s illustrations are bold and adorable. Love that Peter Brown!

by Eric Barclay

What would you do if you found an elephant? Would you want to keep him? In Hiding Phil by Texas author Eric Barclay, three friends meet an awesome elephant named Phil. They have a great time playing in the park until they realize Mom and Dad might not be so excited about keeping an elephant. They must hide Phil! But where do you hide an elephant?

With bold illustrations, and the most adorable hat-wearing elephant you’ve ever seen, you’ll have fun watching the Phil’s friends think of creative ways to hide him. Maybe you can think of even more hiding places for an elephant!
