Publisher's Summary

An eccentric schoolteacher and a widow-lady babysitter are the heroines in these new digital studio recordings of Donald Davis' two all-time most-requested stories. "It was the 42nd year she had taught fourth grade", yet there was nothing routine about Miss Daisy or her methods. Rather than settle for textbook work (Miss Daisy left textbooks in the big closet) she took her class on a year-long imaginary world tour.

In "Miss Annie", when two boys need watching until their school teaching mom gets home after work, they find themselves entrusted to a widow who is so much fun the whole town is sure she's C-R-A-Z-Y.

This is how I wish my teacher would have been.

This is a story about teaching with a passion for learning not pouring facts into kids head. This was before the day of standardized test, when thinking was an important ingredient to learning. This is creative!! and exciting about what school could be like. Do you think that we are instilling these kinds of fond memories of school today. I hope so or I hope we will be inspired to do things differently.

Great story great storyteller!

The story is rated adult/teen - but it makes great family listening.
Who wasn't in the 4th grade. What class didn't think they could break that teacher in just so -- . Miss Daisy has a unique method of teaching and Davis has a wonderful way of telling a story. Look for others by Davis. He can be amusing and heartwarming.
