Description



About the Book



A 20-year veteran third-grade teacher chronicles a year in his classroom with 32 charming, hilarious, tragic third graders--and their pet bunny.



Book Synopsis



Phil Done fixes staplers that won't staple, zippers that won't staple, and pokes pins in the caps of glue bottles that will not pour. He has sung "Happy Birthday" 657 times. A witness to the joys of learning, Done inspires readers with the everyday adventures and milestones of his 32 third graders in this irresistible collection of bite-sized essays.

From the nervous first day of school to the hectic Halloween parade to the disastrous spring musical, Done connects what happens in his classroom to the universal truths that touch us all. 32 Third Graders and One Class Bunny is for anyone who has ever taught children--or been to third grade. It is a testament to the kids who uplift us and the teachers who make a difference. With the perfect mix of humor and wisdom, Done reveals the enduring promise of elementary school as a powerful antidote to the cynicism of our times.
