drey's thoughts:
I'm a little embarrassed... I actually read most of this book last year. Actually, all but the last 20 pages. I sincerely apologize to Mr. Done for letting this one go for so long. I can plead that life interrupted, but that's not true, as you can see by all the other reviews I've written. *sigh*

Anyway. If you haven't picked this up yet--seriously, do it. It is such a charmingly humorous book about children--interacting with, observing, teaching (or trying to!); you will laugh out loud, giggle, snort, and smile your way through it. Some of my favorite chapters include Santa Cause (and if you've ever been around kids, you won't have to guess why), Reading (my son definitely executes reading strategies one thru six), and Bubbles (about taking tests, ugh!). Actually, I can pretty much open it to a random page and read and laugh. Now that's a good entertaining book!
