Phillip Done fixes staplers that won’t staple, zippers that won’t zip, and pokes pins in the caps of glue bottles that will not pour. He has sung “Happy Birthday” 657 times. A witness to the joys of discovery, Done inspires listeners with the everyday adventures and milestones of his 32 third graders in this irresistible collection of bite-sized essays. From the nervous first day of school to the hectic Halloween parade to the disastrous spring musical, Done connects what happens in his classroom to the universal truths that touch us all. He reminds us of the delight of learning something for the first time and of the value of making a difference. 32 Third Graders and One Class Bunny is for anyone who has ever taught children—or been to third grade. It is a testament to the kids who uplift us—and the teachers we will never forget. With just the right mix of humor and wisdom, Done reveals the enduring promise of elementary school as a powerful antidote to the cynicism of our times. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn | 2/14/2014

    " A friend told me I should read this and loaned me her copy. It started out feeling a bit like a Hallmark book--saccharine and emotionally charged. I need to give my greeting card disclaimer--I think they are basically phony. But I kept reading because sometimes I'm stubborn that way. So so glad I did. Marvelous feel good "Let me back at those little beasts!" kind of book. God bless teachers one and all... "

    " If you are an elementary teacher, you will just have to love this book. I laughed until tears were coming out of my eyes quite a few times. Of course I had just finished my first year of teaching, so that made it even funnier (because I had lived through so many of the stories). "

    " I liked this book but didn't love it. It was very amusing at times. There were a few chapters I could do without so I skipped them. It was a nice time-filler and I liked that the chapters were short so I was able to put down the book in between chapters and come back later. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooke | 2/27/2013
