The kids in room 207 don't know how lucky they are to have a nice teacher like Miss Nelson - until their misbehavior causes her disappearance, and they get Miss Viola Swamp for a substitute.

Just as good as I remembered.

I bought this book for my children because I always loved it and wasn't able to find a physical copy of the book. Definitely worth the small amount of money I paid. I use the app for playback and it shows the pictures from the book on my phone. My kids didn't miss out on the wonderful illustrations.

Summer Reading

My son really enjoyed reading this book and enjoyed telling me all about it. He is a rising 1st grader and loves fun quirky stories like this.

My daughter's favorite.

My three year old loves this. She has listened to it so often that she knows it word for word.

Great Story

If you could sum up Miss Nelson is Missing in three words, what would they be?

best book ever

What does Cindy Haynes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think her voice was the perfect teacher voice that gives you the feeling that this is something that can be enjoyed over and over.

Any additional comments?

This is my all time favorite book to read as a child and I downloaded it for my cousin to hear. he loved it so much that he listened to it after it was over.

Miss Nelson Has Found a New Home

What did you love best about Miss Nelson is Missing?

The musical accompaniment that supported the story.

What did you like best about this story?

The way the Miss Viola seems to intimidate the kids. I love substitute teachers like that!

What does Cindy Haynes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She makes the story come alive. It is like watching the story happen right in front of you.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed all the way through it.
