Miss Malarkey Doesn't Live in Room 10, written by Judy Finchler and illustrated by Kevin O'Malley, begins by sharing a young boy's thoughts into what he believes his teacher's life looks like after all her students go home at night. He's convinced that she lives in their classroom, where she grades papers and gets ready for the next school day, and eats dinner, at the best table, in the cafeteria. She plays in the gym and sleeps in the messy Teacher's Room. It's "no wonder kids aren't allowed in there". So, imagine his surprise when she moves into his apartment building with her brightly painted toenails and starts taking out the trash, which she never does at school, and throwing parties, when it isn't even someone's birthday.
Happy reading, friends, and have a wonderful weekend! XOXO
