    6. story of a boy at a new school that gets butterflies in stomach because he is worried about who he will sit with at lunch. That is until he meets Miss Perry.

    7. I am not rating this book. However, please add it to your list of books that should come with a warning sticker on the front, so that as you're merrily rolling along enjoying the story/illustrations about a new kid at school who has a tough first day and his lovely teacher helps him through it you won't be surprised when halfway through the book a car crosses the center line and kills Miss Perry on the way to school one day. NICE. This is actually a fine book, and written with a great amount of [...]

    8. Gentle but honest treatment about death and grieving. Stevie's new teacher is Miss Perry, a compassionate and creative teacher whose eyes disappear when she smiles. Everyday she has a fondest wish for her students: that they be quiet so she can read aloud; that they all plant daffodils around the flagpole; that they sing Happy Birthday to the principal. The children clearly enjoy having her as a teacher. One afternoon, after an unusual start to the school day when Miss Perry is absent, the princ [...]

    9. I think of all those who have or soon will lose loved ones this year, so this book is dedicated to you all at GR. Miss Perry is a teacher whose impact is positive with kidsuntil her untimely death by way of a car accident. The book is sad but very uplifting in a bittersweet way as kids learn to cope and remember Miss Perry for her lessons of love and kindness to others, and to honor good books (James and the Giant Peach is given mention, and I haven't read that one, but thanks to Ms. Brisson's w [...]

    10. A very special book that should only be shared with a young children after you have read and considered the impact the child(ren). Miss Perry always had a "fondest wish", and after she dies in a car accident, her students are grief stricken, but then they begin to move toward happier times, as they remember that would be Miss Perry's fondest wish.

    11. Copyright 2006This book is a book that I think can only be used with the consent of a parent, or the parent using it. It tells the story of a teacher, who everyone loves, getting hit by a car and dying. It is a death and dying book to help children cope. It would be great to use with kids 2-3 grade or higher.

    12. The only reason I gave it three stars is because I thought that it was sad. I did not expect that the teacher would die. I did like how bright and colorful the illustrations were though and the book was well written. It could teach students how deal with loss or at least understand it a little bit more.

    13. Colorful picture book about a wonderful school teacher that passes away. First we get to see the good times with her class, then they learn about her death in a car accident, and eventually the kids all come to remember her fondly. Another great way to discuss such circumstances with your children if they should arise.

    14. Story about a schoolteacher who passes away and the connection she had with her students and their grief. I stumbled upon this book at the library and think it's beautifully written whether children have dealt with loss yet or in preparation for the inevitable. It was sad but real and great teachable moment for my kindergartener.

    15. A good book that deals with the aftermath of losing someone very close to you. While the story is most certainly sad it is told in such a way as to feel uplifting. The illustrations, done in water colors, are well done, but the story and it's small details are what truly make it shine.

    16. I think that is a very good book. It explains a topic that is sometimes hard for a child to understand in a very simple way. The illustrations for this book are bright and colorful and help tell the story. I was not expecting the teacher to die and I will admit that I cried a bit.

    17. Very sweet story - my son was a bit concerned that the teacher died, but I think it's an important story for kids (although maybe not so young) about dealing with grief and remembering the ones we lose.

    18. This book was very endearing. I think it is a good book to help children who are going through a loss of someone they love. This book made me cry, it was very good. I would recommend this to anyone with a child dealing with loss.

    19. I cried like a kid when I read this book. I'm glad I didn't read it to my boy. I can see a time and place for it help a child cope with a loss but I wouldn't read it unless the topic of death needs to be discussed right then

    20. I thought this book was a bit morbid for young readers, but it can be necessary to teach a lesson about death. I honestly had no idea that she was going to die in the story. It was a good read, but pretty sad.

    21. A very sweet story that teaches children about the loss of someone close to them and how to remember. I loved the illustrations!

    22. Touching story that treated the death of an elementary school teacher with respect. Stephane Jorisch's playful and understated illustrations were an effective match for the book.

    23. Great teacher dies in a car wreck. Book discusses the aftermath. Difficult subject matter, well-handled, depressing.

    24. Topic was a little mature for my 2 year old. Would be good for older kids to help them through grieving process.

    25. This book deals with coping with death at a young age specifically the death of a teacher. The book teaches children to kind hope and joy in dark and sad times.

    26. A brilliant, sweet, sad, and funny book that will help a child cope with the death of a loved one. I bawled my eyes out when I read it.

    27. A wonderful children's book, lovingly introducing and helping kids confront feelings around the death of someone close to them.
