Miss Nelson is Missing! Book Cover Miss Nelson is Missing!
Harry Allard, James Marshall,
Juvenile Fiction

The arrival of a strict substitute convinces Miss Nelson's students that they must get their teacher back.

Miss Nelson is Missing is a must-have for any teacher, especially substitute teachers! This book demonstrates beautify the need to appreciate what we have. The book is about a particularly naughty class (so naughty that they are considered the naughtiest class in the school) and their good-natured, calm teacher. One day, their teacher does not arrive at school and she is replaced with a particularly nasty substitute. A simple twist at the end makes the story quite humorous although some younger children may miss the subtly of it.  Miss Nelson certainly is a classic that has entertained generations of children.
