(CLOSED) Close Encounters of the third-grade kind Book Giveaway (5 Winners)

Are you ready for a book that will have you laughing so hard you're in tears? We all know kids say and do the darnedest things and the teachers that have to deal with them need all the praise we can give them a huge pat on the back or a huge laugh from this book :).

Phillip Done is a 20 year veteran (I love they say veteran because a classroom is like a war at times .. LOL) of the classroom wrote Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind. You will die laughing over the rituals of buying school supplies and class list. He has a great way of writing where you feel like you are right there with the distinct personalities of grades K-4 kids. Yes you will nod your head and say oh boy that is my kid. You will learn about a things he has learned from trick or treating 8 y/o boys to kindergartens and why they must trap leprechauns. Take note of what every child should experience before they grow up.

As you read along you will think back to that one school teacher that touched your heart. Mine was in Junior High Mr. A, he was a wonderful man that made you laugh and I'm sure put up with a lot and handled it all with style and grace. Now I hope he remembers me also but not as the one student you never forget. Be all fond memories please, not memories of my crazy mile high bangs or hammer pants ... oh please those were bad years, but I was a good student and very nice :). A wonderful book of the joys of kids the good, the bad and the questionable!
