"Most of us enjoyed this book. Many of us knew by the title that there would be some humour."

For a young kindergarten student, the day on which her mother accompanied her to school for the first time was memorable, to say the least!

Her mother was so excited at visiting her daughter’s school that she barged into the front of the line ahead of other students, forgot to remove her (very) muddy shoes in the classroom, shouted her answers out to the teacher’s questions without raising her hand, talked while the teacher was reading aloud during storytime, dropped crumbs everywhere during snack time …and neglected to clean them up. How very embarrassing for her daughter! Really ... had her mother no idea of how to act away from home?

Perhaps the worst moment of the day was when her mother swung on the jungle ropes in gym class when the class was supposed to be playing beanbag tag.

It was fortunate that the teacher, Mrs. Beaudry, was so understanding, having no doubt witnessed the first-time visits of many over-excited parents over the years. “Once your mom gets used to the way we do things, I’m sure she’ll learn how to express her thoughts and feelings in more appropriate ways,” she told the little girl.

Her teacher was right. After a few hours, her mother had learned how to use her indoor voice, listen during storytime, take turns with others and clean up any messes.

Complete with hilarious illustrations, Maureen Fergus’ role-reversal story is an entertaining way for children to learn about classroom behaviour and misbehaviour.
