How to Get Your Teacher Ready… all year long, from the creators of the New York Times bestsellers How to Babysit a Grandpa, How to Babysit a Grandma, and How to Catch Santa.
This humorous new book in the beloved HOW TO . . . series takes readers through a fun and busy school year. Written in tongue-in-cheek instructional style, a class of adorable students gives tips and tricks for getting a teacher ready—for the first day of school, and all the events and milestones that will follow (picture day, holiday concert, the 100th day of school, field day!). And along the way, children will see that getting their teacher ready is really getting themselves ready. Filled with charming role-reversal humor, this is a playful and heartwarming celebration of teachers and students, and the perfect gift for back-to-school readiness or graduation.

"You're ready for the first day of school. But what about your teacher?" Having previously explored how to take care of moms, dads, and grandparents, Reagan and Wildish zip readers through a school year's worth of advice, from making sure that one's teacher is prepared for school picture day ("Remind your teacher, No messy snacks' ") to handing her a favorite book to read when things don't go as planned. Wildish's vivid palette and cast of round-headed kids and adults emphasize the chaos and camaraderie of the classroom, and Reagan's enthusiastic narrative essentially makes school feel like one big party.
