Teaser Tuesday: Close Encounters of The Third-Grade Kind

11/17/09


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Seeing that I am a former third grade teacher, I thought this would be fun to post today.

My Teaser:

"If we outlawed sugar in schools, I'd worry about the new teachers most. They would never experience the thrill of scraping their students off the ceiling on November 1 because their mommies let them bring half their Halloween loot to school for snack."

pg. 204 Close Encounters of The Third-Grade Kind: Thoughts on Teacherhood by Phillip Done

What are you reading? If you have a teaser, you can head on over to Miz B's blog or share it here by leaving a comment.

All that candy definitely has a down side.

LOL! Would you recommend the book, Shelly? If so it might make a nice Christmas present for my stepsister, who teaches primary school.

A little bias in nature to think all mothers allow their kids THAT much candy. None-the-less it does sound like a good read.

Hahaha! Holding sides. I so remember how super excited we all were to get back to school after Halloween to brag about how much candy you were able to rake in. Now, I cannot imagine the dread of the teachers. Awesome teaser!
