Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind by Phillip Done: Join us for Silicon Valley Moms Group's next Book Club on Monday, December 7th

CloseEncountersoftheThirdGradeKindWhat is it like to be a teacher? As parents, sometimes we might wonder how teachers do all they do? Is it the hardest job in the world? Or the funnest? A little of both? Join us on Monday, December 7th as we discuss Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind: Thoughts on Teacherhood by Phillip Done for our next book club

About the book: A twenty-year veteran of the classroom, elementary school teacher Phillip Done takes readers through a lively and hilarious year in the classroom. Starting with the relative calm before the storm of buying school supplies and posting class lists, he shares the distinct personalities of grades K-4, what he learned from two professional trick or treating 8-year-old boys, the art of learning cursive and letter-writing, how kindergartners try to trap leprechauns, and what every child should experience before he or she grows up. 

These charming, sweet, and funny tales of Mr. Done's trials and triumphs as an award-winning schoolteacher will touch readers' hearts and remind them of the true joys of childhood. We all have that one special, favorite grade school teacher whom we fondly remember throughout our adult lives - and every teacher also has students whom they will never forget. This is the perfect book for teachers, parents, and anyone else who is looking for a lighthearted, nostalgic read.

Read along with us: Buy your copy of the book today and get ready to discuss with us on Monday, December 7th. See you at book club!
