A small moment makes a big difference to a little girl — thanks to a totally wonderful teacher who knows just what to do.
Molly can't wait to share her grandma's crystal with all her classmates, the special crystal she looks at each night as she falls asleep. Everyone crowds around, eager to see it — until Russell runs by with his flashy, water-spurting dinosaur. Now Molly's eyes are filling with tears, and her heart is going thumpity-thump, and it's the most totally horrible day in the whole world. Is there anything Miss Plumberry can do to make things wonderful again?

Pres-Grade 2–This gentle picture book captures the impact a sensitive teacher has on the lives of her students. Molly is having a totally wonderful day: the weather is wonderful, and she is bringing a special crystal from Grandmas house to school to share with her classmates. However, when the other children are distracted from admiring her prize by Russell and his water-squirting stegosaurus, Mollys eyes burned hot and wet....She felt her heart go thumpity-thumpity-thumpity inside. Fortunately, Miss Plumberry redirects the classs interest back to Mollys crystal with thoughtful questions and observations. For the girl, it is a totally wonderful day again thanks to her teacher. Rosen deftly captures Mollys feelings: a great big lion was going to run in and gobble everyone up. Come on, lion. Come on, lion, thought Molly. The soft watercolor-and-pencil illustrations reveal her emotions and expose the fickle attention of children in engaging, somewhat idyllic, spreads. This title is a good choice to share when discussing feelings and consideration, and it makes an excellent selection for teacher-appreciation day.–Piper L. Nyman, formerly at Fairfield Civic Center Library, CA
