You don't appreciate what you've got 'til it's gone. Or so the premise of this book goes. Miss Nelson is a school teacher with a class of miscreants. To get even she dons a disguise and plays the role of strict substitute teacher. The ruse works, and when she returns as herself, the students are perfect angels, so glad they are to have their sweet teacher back. Just the fix our public school system needs? Perhaps not, but it makes a fine childrens story. Illustrations by James Marshall.

I remember reading this book as a child myself. I loved reading it with my first grader whose eyes lit up when he realized what had happened. A really cute book about how you don't know what you've got til it's gone.

My kids love this one and missed it when I gave it back to the Library. I am requesting it again. I just hope it is the one with the CD. I can't tell from the page.
