There are lots of things that regular people can do, but teachers can't. Teachers can't ride a bike or scooter to school. And they can never be tardy. Teachers can't buy their own apples. And they can't teach their best without flowers on their desk. But first they really need some help cleaning the blackboard. And the erasers!
It's a wonder they come back to school at all!

There are so many things teachers can't do. They can't ride skateboards or scooters to school, or be tardy, or buy their own apples. They can't write on the chalkboard without squeaking, or trade desserts at lunch, or feed the salamander or guinea pigs by themselves. And, they can never run out of smiles or smiley faces. What can they do? They can spell Mississippi and encyclopedia and they can do the thing they do best of all--teach! Douglas Wood and illustrator Doug Cushman (creators of What Moms Can't Do and What Dads Can't Do) pay tribute to teachers in their latest feel-good dinosaur picture book, told from a child's perspective. The adorable illustrations expertly capture early classroom life, from eraser-clapping-induced chalk clouds to finger-painting projects gone awry. This sweet and affectionate offering will no doubt take its place next to the pile of apples on teacher's desk. (Ages 3 to 8) --Karin SnelsonAbout the Author:
