Synopsis

This third picture book starring the beloved Miss Bindergarten takes a look at what happens when everyone's favorite kindergarten teacher gets sick. On Sunday the flu hits, and on Monday Miss Bindergarten stays home from kindergarten. But never fear, the substitute teacher Mr. Tusky is on the scene. Although on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, other students stay home sick, the class works together with the substitute to keep things running smoothly. Busy with show-and-tell, singing songs, and making get-well cards, they receive a joyous surprise on Friday, when Miss Bindergarten (and everyone else) is back!

With vigorous text and brisk rhymes, this clever book also manages to teach the days of the week in a playful, appealing way. Ashley Wolff's bright and exuberant illustrations burst with kindergarten activity.
