Flashback Tuesday: Miss Daisy is Crazy by Dan Gutman (My Weird School #1)

Here in the Northeast it is still summer vacation.  On the West Coast and places in between it is already back to school time.  I thought I would recommend a really fun series of books for kids about school---starting with the first book.

My Weird School #1: Miss Daisy is Crazy by Dan Gutman starts on the first day of school for AJ a precocious who hates school.  Luckily he has a very savvy teacher who he thinks isn't too smart.  In reality she is very smart because she plays into her students hands by making them "teach" her how to do things.  Reverse psychology at it's best.  Dan Gutman really knows how kids think which is probably why he is such a popular author.  This is a great series for the reluctant reader....just don't tell them that!  A must have series of books....
