Reminded me of the time I met my math teacher working as a grocery clerk over the summer. Kids never realize that teachers are human until they meet them in their natural habitat!

Great book to discuss how we view people differently depending on our experiences with them. It made me think about my elementary school principal. Wow, she was scary!

Fun to read with a deep/silly voice for the dino/teacher. Has a positive message about teachers in the end.

My Teacher Is a Monster! (No, I Am Not.)
by Peter Brown

Bobby and his teacher, Ms. Kirby, don't get along -- after all, Ms. Kirby is a mean, green, sharp-toothed monster! True, Bobby's behaviour isn't perfect, but are a few paper airplanes really a good reason for Ms. Kirby to stomp and roar and take away recess? Bobby doesn't think so. A chance encounter at the park, however, leads teacher and student to see each other differently. As they discover that paper airplanes are more fun outside the classroom, Ms. Kirby starts to look a lot less green and toothy. Fans of Mr. Tiger Goes Wild will welcome the return of Peter Brown's blocky, expressive art and pitch-perfect humour.
