Don't Be Silly, Mrs. Millie!

TIME magazine Best Books for Children 2005

Nominated for Washington State Children's Picture Book Award, Keystone State Reading Association Award, Bill Martin Jr. Picture Book Award (Kansas Reading Association)

Mrs. Millie has lots of fun teasing her kindergartners. She tells them to hang up their goats, get out their paper and penguins, wash their hands with soap and walrus, and eat gorilla cheese sandwiches for lunch.

The children think Mrs. Millie is hilarious. They have fun correcting her "mistakes." Finally, at the end of the day, they get on the octopus to go home!
