    Does anyone else remember that heavenly smell of newsprint in school when you fill out your order form for your book club And your moms neatly signed check in your chubby fist, paper clipped to your book mark sized list ready to turn in batts eyes And the excitement when you see piles and piles of books rubber banded together knowing your about to get your hands on your own stack Sorry, got lost in a moment.

    This was the first book I ever bought at a school book fair and it will remain one of my favorites I recently decided to read one chapter of it each night to my 6 year old son I loved the sounds of his giggles and howling laughter as I read the stories that made me laugh so hard I couldn t breathe as a child I was afraid that he wouldn t love the stories as much as I had as a child I was also afraid that I wouldn t find the stories as entertaining this time around I was very wrong The deli This was the first book I ever bought at a school book fair and it will remain one of my favorites I recently decided to read one chapter of it each night to my 6 year old son I loved the sounds of his giggles and howling laughter as I read the stories that made me laugh so hard I couldn t breathe as a child I was afraid that he wouldn t love the stories as much as I had as a child I was also afraid that I wouldn t find the stories as entertaining this time around I was very wrong The delightful little children on the top floor of this silly school still put me in stitches and kept my son s usually waivering attention I am so glad I decided to revisit this part of my childhood and brought my son along for the hilarious ride

    I read this book because my 2nd grader liked it so much and recommended it to me He normally will tell me about books he s read, but since this was the first one he wanted me to read, I thought I d give it a try Plus, I wanted to be able to discuss it knowledgably with him Louis Sachar is a clever writer who, I believe, appeals to all ages His many puns and literal interpretations of figurative sayings were delightful, and my son and I enjoyed talking about our favorite parts Here s one we I read this book because my 2nd grader liked it so much and recommended it to me He normally will tell me about books he s read, but since this was the first one he wanted me to read, I thought I d give it a try Plus, I wanted to be able to discuss it knowledgably with him Louis Sachar is a clever writer who, I believe, appeals to all ages His many puns and literal interpretations of figurative sayings were delightful, and my son and I enjoyed talking about our favorite parts Here s one we shared Mrs Jewls the nicest teacher at Wayside School is talking about how our clothes aren t what makes us important or great When Stephen s tie ripped in half, he says Now I m not great and important any Yes you are, Stephen said Mrs Jewls You re just as great and important as you ever were I am Stephen asked Certainly, said Mrs Jewls The tie didn t make you important It doesn t matter what you wear on the outside It s what s underneath that counts Underneath asked Stephen Yes, said Mrs Jewls If you want to be great and important, you have to wear expensive underpants
