Awesome book for teachers to read to their class at the end of the school year. I also recommend First Day Blues by the same author.

As if the teachers *and* the kids aren't totally excited about the last day of school -- still, cute, and an unusual subject. At least it's not another first day of school book!

This was a very cute book that shows a teacher needs a summer break just as much as her students do. Reading this book would be a great way to bring up the topic of how everyone plans to spend their summer. Or the teacher could introduce the book and then discuss ¿Last Day Blues.¿ Then they could have the students write about their thoughts of the school year and how they think the last day will be for them.

Title: Last Day Blues - Mrs. Hartwell's Classroom Adventures Author: Julie Danneberg Illustrator: Judy Love Published: 2-1-2016 Pages: 32 Publisher: Charlesbridge Genre: Children's Fiction Sub Genre: Series; Friendship ISBN: 9781580891042 Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley My Rating: 5 Stars . Mrs. Hartwell's class is excited that summer will soon be here but worry their beloved teacher will be sad with them going away for so long and want to give her a present that shows how much they love her. After many suggestions are mentioned they choose a giant poster that they decorate themselves telling why they think she is so special. I was asked to sub for a teacher who was a dear friend who had been in an auto accident just six weeks before school was to come to a close for the summer. Expecting her back in 2 weeks, unfortunately complications kept her out for the rest of the year. The children were devastated thinking that Miss Holly would not be returning. Arrangements were made for Holly to come to closing day ceremonies and the class agreed to reproduce the poster for her as a gift not realizing they would be giving it to her in person. On the last day of school, following the graduation ceremonies, everyone was asked to remain seated for a special presentation to a valued member of the school. Holly's class was asked to return to the stage and Holly was wheeled out onto the stage by her husband at presented with the poster the children has made for her and a plaque naming her teacher of the year. I did notice the plaque was placed to her side and the rolled poster remained in her arms to be admired by herself and her students during the party that followed. If I had not seen this book I never would have even thought of this idea. It also helped Holly realize the impact she made with the students she taught and when returned in the fall she had her posted, matted, framed and under glass, in a place of prominence to show some of the things students would learn and do in the coming year. Easing the fears of the new kindergarten class.
