Where has this book been all of my life? I've been told about this book and I have seen it so many places and I absolutely need it for my classroom library! This book would be excellent in teaching those new classroom rules. We all know that one student that just can't keep their lips together longer than 30 seconds! I would use this book to help my students learn "how to do school". I think I would be excellent in forming those new classroom rules collaboratively and through this story they can see why it's important to respect other people's voices!
