Ms. Nelson Read a Miss Nelson Book


I knew it would happen sooner or later at school.  So I refrained from introducing ML to Miss Nelson books and the vile Viola Swamp.

ML didn’t tell me when her teacher, Ms Wilson, read Miss Nelson is Missing!  However, she immediately told me when Miss Nelson is Back was read.  The teacher assistant in her class named Ms Nelson read it. She thought Ms. Nelson reading a Miss Nelson book was hilarious.  I considered it priceless.

ML asked, “Are there other Miss Nelson books?”  I responded, “I think so.”To my surprise there was only one additional book… Miss Nelson Has a Field Day. I commend Harry Allard and James Marshall for creating Miss Nelson and Viola Swamp.  Thirty years later they continue to resonate with children.  A roaring success.
